So I'm going to be the cook for a school trip (4th year University, so we're pretty on top of things :-P). I was thinking of a dessert to try out. I have the time to make it, and I can make Pavlovas easily. Here's the idea:
Turn the egg yolks from the Pav into (thin) custard to top them
Roast some plums that are coated in a syrup made of brown sugar and Disaronno (an almond liqueur, vaguely similar to Amaretto).
Top the Pavlova with the custard, put one plum on each (the plums will be halved and cored prior to roasting).
How does it sound? Would Disaronno work? I intend to try it out before hand of course, but I'd rather not waste some good liqueur if this is a taste no-no, or if there's something better
ps: all possible cooking equipment will exist, since I'm bringing what I need, so I'm good to go there :-)
