Rhubarb Soup w/ Meringue and Whipped Cream

"Rhubarb soup is a simple, easy way to get spring into a dessert," says David C. Felton, executive chef of Ninety Acres at Natirar park in Peapack-Gladstone. "Rhubarb is at its peak right now in Jersey and has a wonderful tart flavor that lends itself to basic preparations. This recipe is a take on pavlova, a classic dessert of fruit, whipped cream and meringues."
