The most well-known ballet-related food is the wonderful dessert named after (Anna) Pavlova:


When I did two cycling trips in New Zealand, I think the only reason I made it to the end point was for the Pavlova we had each night. It was everywhere in Australia, too, much like apple pie was on the menu of every old fashioned diner.

Who invented it?
A recipe

Today I went to a wonderful French bakery in Vancouver, Patisserie Bordeaux, and bought a dessert called a "damboise." It is a figure eight-shaped danish pastry filled with raspberry jam in one of the circles and custard with whole blueberries in the other. I hoovered it down finished it before I realized I should take a photo Posted Image . Next time I'll try to remember. Yummmmmm.

Oh my, a continual diet of Pavlovas would totally change the "look" of today's dancers. I can see how they would motivate you to spin as fast as you can!
