Recipe: Sara La Fountain's summer pavlova with passion fruit cream served with strawberries and pistachios

Here's another recipe from Asian Food Channel (AFC) celebrity chef, Sara La Fountain which she shared with us during her cooking demo at The Royale Chulan KL, Malaysia. The summer pavlova was my favorite dish from the demo - light, sweet end to a lovely afternoon.
