New Zealand Strawberry Pavlova

Just my luck to stumble on a strawberry dish this June: New Zealand strawberry pavlova. Inspired by a Russian ballerina of the same name who once danced in New Zealand, pavlova is the lightest dessert ever. You are eating a cloud studded with strawberries. See below for the story, recipes, and how-to-photos of cooking with Briana Robillard from New Zealand.
