New takes on the summer’s best pairing
05 July 2017 | Schwartz
A summer of tennis just screams strawberries and cream! If the Wimbledon season sees you glued to the Centre Court action and tucking into nation’s favourite fruity dessert, you’re going to love these new sweet and savoury twists on the traditional treat. Whether you’re hosting a Wimbledon party or just can’t get enough of the summery flavour combination, why not try one of these tasty dishes inspired by the two classic ingredients?
When it gets to a tiebreaker, no-one wants to be worrying about what’s in the oven. That’s where this beautiful no-cook strawberry soufflé comes into play! Made with crushed strawberries and just a hint of black pepper, this light and airy chilled dessert is the perfect summer treat. Simply make ahead and chill overnight for a quick fix during the match. Serve with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
Strawberries don’t often make it onto the savoury menu, but this dish is something special. Wonderfully tender pork roasted with rosemary and thyme is the centrepiece, while a mustard and tarragon sauce complete with a strawberry vinaigrette makes for a perfectly rounded dish. Top with diced strawberries and walnuts for the winning sweet and savoury match.
If ever there were two British traditions made for each other, it’s long summer days watching Wimbledon and the classic fruit scone. Take a break in the shade with an English breakfast tea and freshly made treats, complete with rich strawberry and vanilla jam. Made with the freshest strawberries, be sure to cook a little extra and save a jar in the fridge for an easy dessert topping.
A twist on the sports party regular, these cinnamon tortilla chips work perfectly with a not-too-sweet strawberry and cucumber salsa. With just a hint of warming ginger, these snacks are a refreshing and lightly spiced delight. Better yet, you won’t have to worry about missing any of the action. These moreish mouthfuls are ready in just 20 minutes.
