Of this childhood recipe, Quay Executive Chef Peter Gilmore says: "Earliest memories may be not quite as early as this photo but I do remember always wanting to lick the pavlova beaters. I enjoyed the beaters as much as I did the pavlova. Good food, cooking and entertaining was always central in my family growing up".
