Le temps des fraises
Early Spring marks the begining of what I call strawberry season. I adore strawberries, their tart, tangy first taste, the sweetness on the second bite, its juicy consistency, it's colour. A colour that is quite difficult to obtain, as there is - like the Ferrari red - a very specific strawberry red, and I have yet to come across a perfect rendering of this hue outside of a... well, outside of a strawberry, actually!!
I have been consistently storing up in strawberries, these last weeks, eating them raw, fresh out of the tap, or using them for cakes, cocktails, juices, milkshakes. It is a fruit that really goes a long way, and one can do so much with it, so to me it's quite worth the money!! This week I will share with you a few of my favourite ways for using strawberries, starting with these, luscious and ripe, ready for the eating!
