It’s officially summer and with warmer weather across the UK, many of us are enjoying garden parties and BBQ’s. Every year, a large calendar of sporting events also entertains us throughout the summer with the next big event being Wimbledon, taking place from July 3rd – 16th.
Wimbledon is famous not only for tennis, but also for strawberries & cream, a favourite indulgence for visitors to the Championships. In celebration of Wimbledon we’re enjoying our favourite strawberry recipes and we hope you’ll try them too!
Our scones with jam & cream are always a favourite, especially when the sun comes out. We serve a range of delicious home baked scones in our Café Bistro, perfect to enjoy with a refreshing cup of tea if you’re visiting the north east.
Eton Mess is also a British summertime favourite and our version features strawberries, cream, meringue and crumbly chunks of Dean’s oat biscuits.
Perfect for warmer July days, try our refreshing Strawberry Sorbet – a delicious treat to enjoy in the garden.
If you’re entertaining and looking for a special dessert why not try our strawberry and vanilla cheesecake recipe. A sumptuous sweet to round off your Wimbledon-themed party, it’s made with a crumbly Dean’s shortbread base and served with delicious fresh strawberries on the side, your guests will love it!
If you’re lucky enough to be heading to Wimbledon or simply watching on TV with family and friends at home, these recipes are perfect to enjoy now and throughout the summer.
