Novice pav mak­ers among win­ners

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The win­ners of an an­nual pavlova com­pe­ti­tion are show­ing that rook­ies some­times do it best.

Block­house Bay res­i­dent Nia Cher­ring­ton, 10, took out the chil­dren’s cat­e­gory of the Nosh Best Pavlova Com­pe­ti­tion at its Mt Eden store.

It was her first cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Nia’s ‘‘gor­geous’’ cre­ation was topped with cream, blue­ber­ries, straw­ber­ries and pas­sion­fruit.

Ep­som Girls Gram­mar School stu­dent Jada Man­dery, who is only 15, took out the adult cat­e­gory.

Her win­ning pav used a tra­di­tional recipe topped off with blue­ber­ries, rasp­ber­ries, straw­ber­ries and cream.

Six­teen-year-old Claudia Frew, who also goes to Ep­som Girls Gram­mar School, is the win­ner of the al­ter­na­tive cat­e­gory. She wowed judges with a rose­wa­ter meringue with pome­gran­ate cream, topped with rasp­ber­ries, pome­gran­ate seeds and rose petals.

Some­thing dif­fer­ent: Claudia Frew was streaks ahead in the Best Al­ter­na­tive Pavlova

Fruity feast: Nia Cher­ring­ton took out the Best Kids Pavlova cat­e­gory win­ner.

Sweet treat: Jada Man­dery is the win­ner of the Best Adult Pavlova cat­e­gory.
