Ingredients
  

For the Meringue:

  • 2 Egg whites
  • 50 g (2 oz) Caster Sugar
  • 50 g (2 oz) icing sugar
  • pinch of Salt

For the Rose and Mascarpone Whipped Cream:

  • 150 g (5.5 oz) Whipping cream
  • 80 g (3 oz) Mascarpone
  • 20 g (3/4 oz) icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp Rose Water

For the Garnish:

  • 15-20 Raspberries
  • 15 15 Lychees either fresh or from a can
  • Bits and pieces of pink pralines, edible flowers for decoration

Instructions
 

Prepare the Meringue:

  • Preheat the oven to 130°C (260 F).
  • Beat egg whites half stiff with a pinch of salt, then gradually incorporate caster sugar, tbsp by tbsp. Whisk for a few minutes longer until the consistence is thick and glossy.
  • Using a spatula, incorporate sifted icing sugar, gently.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a pastry bag or a spoon, spread 4 to 6 meringues on the paper. If you’re using a spoon: place a tbsp of meringue on the paper, and spread it to a circular shape using the bottom of your spoon.
  • Place another tbsp of meringue on top and repeat the process. The meringues are supposed to be slightly higher at the rims.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes. Turn off the oven and let the meringues cool inside with the door open.
  • When cold, carefully detach the meringues from the parchment paper.

Prepare the Whipped Cream:

  • Place cold whipping cream, mascarpone and icing sugar in the bowl of your standmixer.
  • Whisk into a rather firm whipped cream.
  • Using a spatula, gently incorporate the rose water.

Assemble the Pavlovas:

  • Prepare a lychee brunoise: dice 10 lychees into very small cubes.
  • Distribute the brunoise evenly on each meringue.
  • Cover with rose whipped cream, then add 3-4 raspberries and a lychee on top of each pavlova.
  • Sprinkle with bits and pieces of pink pralines, or edible flowers.
  • Enjoy right away with a glass of chilled Étoile rosé!

Notes

You might notice that the oven temperature is quite high. For pavlovas, we prefer baking meringues at 130°C rather than 90 or 100°C because it makes for meringues that are crispy on the outside and super chewy inside. They won’t be immaculate white, but will have more of a rustic look instead! You can prepare everything a few hours in advance and assemble them at the last minute.
