Preheat the oven to 140°C. Lightly oil a large piece of greaseproof paper on a baking sheet.

Spoon the mixture into +- a 20 cm round onto baking paper. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for about 1 hour 30 minutes, until crisp.  Allow to cool on a wire rack.

To assemble: Combine the cream with ¾ of the lemon curd and spoon into the cooled pavlova. Top with berries and drizzle with more curd.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
