No one in my family has ever tasted a pavlova and I want to make one for our Thanksgiving Day feast in addition to a cake. We usually have between 12-20 people. I know Aussie's don't celebrate Thanksgiving, so here's a little history on the holiday.
The initial "Thanksgiving" feast, held in 1621, was really a traditional English harvest celebration. The Pilgrims shared it with the Native Americans because they had taught the colonists to plants crops and hunt wild game. Without the Native Americans, the Pilgrims may not have survived the harsh winter and been able to celebrate their first harvest of plentiful crops in the New World.
