Ripe For the Picking: Three Seasonal Strawberry Recipes by Catie Collins & Zoe Warde-Aldam

17 2 mins 0

WWith the cancellation of many large events such a Wimbledon, strawberry farmers have been left with an enormous surplus. So, don't let them go to waste! The foodie duo, Catie and Zoe, co-founders of Not Just a Pretty Plate, have provided three recipes to satisfy your Summer strawberry cravings.

Whether you’re the green-fingered type and grow your own, or you eagerly await its arrival in your local greengrocers come solstice, nothing signifies the start of summer quite like British strawberry season.

Drenched in cream, doused in sugar, or guzzled fresh from the punnet, we simply can’t get enough of them – and this is just as well given the unexpected glut of 2020.

From Wimbledon to Henley, the cancellation of outdoor events has left producers with an enormous surplus, so there’s never been a better time to buy them in box-loads, get into the kitchen, and whip up a tasty celebration of our favourite summer fruit. From a tipsy rosé-spiked tart to ever-so-slightly virtuous spelt sponge squares, this trio of strawberry treats will guarantee smiles on faces, no matter how sunburned.

Strawberry and Lemon Thyme Tart
A beautiful recipe to take your time over, serving 6 to 8 of your favourite people.

Strawberry, Hazelnut and Meringue Stack
There’s a lot of layers and textures in this one, a good ‘show off’ recipe.

Spelt and Strawberry Traybake
A great, simple recipe that is easy to follow and will please the masses.
