Tropical Fruit Pavlova

Serves 10-12 Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite says: My mum has to be the best Pavlova maker in the world.

Gluten-free pistachio and chocolate torte

"Gluten intolerance seems to becoming more and more common. In my eyes though, that is no reason not to enjoy home baked goodies. This torte is spectacular, and really hits the sweet spot. Due to the large amount of nuts, it does keep particularly well and is probably even better the day after it is made."
