Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a pavlova cake. Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the famous ballerina, Anna Pavlova. Cornstarch is used in pavlova, giving the cake a crispy exterior and soft interior. It is topped with whipped cream and fruit, often kiwi and strawberry. It's a delicate dessert, so it's recommended that you cool it completely in the oven and serve fresh. Click here for the recipe.
