At the tail end of winter I look for bright and tart desserts that give a lift to all these decadent chocolates, cakes, and pudding we've been devouring to no end.
In comes Prospect, which you first heard about here, and this Passion Fruit Pavlova ($11). Little three-bite meringues are filled with whipped milk chocolate and paired with a sunny passion fruit cremeux. Alternate spoonfuls of silky cremeux with crisp meringue, and finish a bite with that topping of housemade kiwi sorbet.
