It’s Wimbledon week so I’m told (and you can’t really help but notice with tennis everywhere you turn). But I have to confess, it’s not really my cup tea. No, that’s right, I’m not a fan of tennis – endless hours of watching a ball go from side to side just sends me to sleep. Yawn, yawn….
But Wimbledon is known for something else though that I am a big fan of: Strawberries and cream. In a bowl with a sprinkle of sugar if they are a little sharp. Or strawberry jam and clotted cream with scones. Mmmm, yum. Now that’s my cup of tea!
And strawberries and chocolate of course make a wonder partnership too. Here at James Chocolates we serve this double in our gold award winning strawberry and black pepper bar- the subtle pepper in the background brings out the fruity strawberry. In the words of the Great Taste judges: “The flavour of the strawberries are lovely and vibrant and the chocolate has great creaminess. There is a kick from the black pepper, which cuts through the sweetness and works really well.”
So rather than watching tennis on the telly this weekend maybe I’ll listen to Pilton Pop festival (or Glastonbury as its more commonly known) whilst munching on a strawberry bar. In fact if I stick my head out of the window, I think I can just about hear it now….
