Strawberries and Cream. 

Strawberries and Cream

10 out of 10 for simplicity and looks! Even drunk it would be hard to get this wrong. I recommend that you only dish 1 plate and share the experience. This one also has the added advantage of being portable, the lounge, the bedroom, the bath tub...... I will leave the rest up to you.

 A Bit Of History

A 17th Century English Writer Dr. William Butler wrote "Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did". The strawberry has been around since the beginning of time and is actually a weed and not a berry at all but lucky for us it is bright red and shaped like a heart and if you stick it on a plate with almost nothing else it creates the perfect end to a meal. It is also surrounded by legends like that if you break a double strawberry in half and share it with a member of the opposite sex, you will fall in love with each other (might come in useful!). or the strawberry was a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of Love, because of its heart shapes and red colour. Queen Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII had a strawberry shaped birthmark on her neck, which some claimed proved she was a witch (you might want to watch out for this!).

What Wine?

Strawberries and Cream cry out for a sparkling wine or champagne. But you don’t need to go over the top there are some fantastic dinky bottles of sparking rosé and white wine around just ask at your local bottle store. Oh and don’t forget to drop a strawberry into the glass for an extra bit of show.
