Rose & Pepper Pavolva - Nigella Lawson

This is not only a stunningly beautiful dessert to look at, but it tastes that way too. A pavolva usually takes a bit of skill to make, so we’d recommend this for more seasoned bakers and chefs, but you can always give it a shot! Made with rosewater, strawberries, passionfruit and pepper, you’d be surprised at how bold yet delicate these incredible flavours come out to be. Get the full recipe here.
