Method

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

Place the egg whites, sugar, vinegar and hot water in the metal bowl  or mixer and whisk at the highest speed for 5 minutes until you have soft white peaks of meringue.

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.

Cut with a long-bladed knife dipped into hot water and wiped clean.
