My next set recipes & pictures are all desserts and contain strawberries.
We get asked quite a lot in summer to do desserts with strawberries as this is when they are at their most tastiest, being grown in the UK and not forced under glass in foreign climes.
The one called Strawberry Fields came about when I was asked to design a menu around the Beatles songs as the future groom played in a tribute band.
That menu is on our website.
The Strawberries three ways was a request from a customer wanting a dessert for a dinner party using strawberries and chocolate, so I came up with this. So you can impress your friends at your next dinner party good luck, and best wishes,
I can’t make a strawberry dessert without incorporating this coulis, it just lifts the whole thing and tastes wonderful.
1 Punnet of strawberries
Crème de cassis
This is good with fan of melon or melon pearls or drizzled over ice cream or any number of recipes.
This is one of my favorite coulis, a couple of recipes will follow.
As I said previously the next 2 desserts are made with strawberries and make a wonderful and easy presentation for a dinner party dessert the first one I have already mentioned was part of a menu for a Beatles theme, the second one came about when I was asked to make a dessert using strawberries and chocolate, the event was quite large so I needed something that was quick to assemble hence strawberries three ways.
In both these desserts I have used strawberry cheese cake, so I will give you my recipe for this and then go on to the next two.
1 Large pkt of digestive biscuits
2 Heaped table spoons golden syrup
5 oz Butter
1 Pint of double cream
3 Table spoons of coulis (see above)
10 oz Caster sugar

To decorate, strawberries use whipped cream and basil leaves.
