The chocolate chip cookie may already be a damned near-perfect food, but the addition of kettle-style potato chips and flaky Maldon salt ups its crunch game exponentially. After much experimentation I opted for the thick, deep crunch of Kettle chips. Though I’m a fan of melt-in-your-mouth Lay’s-style chips, they just didn’t hold up to the heft of the buttery cookie dough, which has its own, whole-other-level thing going on thanks to an egg-yolk-enriched recipe and some nutty browned butter.

Pavlova, the meringue-based with a crisp crust and a pillowy inside, is named after Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. According the legend, the dessert was created in her honor while she was touring Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s. While both Australia and New Zealand claim ownership of the dessert, it was named after a Russian, and therefore deserves an honorary mention during the last day of Around The World In 5 Editors.
