The Oxford Dictionary just CONFIRMED that the Pavlova was invented in New Zealand!
The Oxford English Dictionary may have just settled a the longest running bitch fight between Australia and New Zealand over who invented the infamous pavlova...
The heavenly goodness of a dessert was named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, who visited both countries in the 1920s. Cool, so both Aussies and Kiwi's agree with that, give it up to the home girl Anna Pavlova... BUT WHO INVENTED IT!!
Well our wee mates over at The Oxford English Dictionary just relaunched, and in the new edition it CLEARLY states:
"The first recorded pavlova recipe appeared in New Zealand in 1927."
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOW, NZ - HOME OF THE LONG WHITE CLOUD, AND THE PAVLOVA BITCHESSSSSSSS!!
