A raspberry stuffed ice cream cake that screams summer

As summer continues with it’s normal severity, I thought it would be encouraging to post a picture of a dessert which would suit a desert. Something cooling yet with the sharp tang of fresh fruit, in this case raspberries. This was shot a few summers ago on a sunny day in the Charente, under the watchful eye of the food writer and marvellous cook, Mary Cadogan, and serves to remind me that summer is bound to arrive at some time. With so many areas of our world being in freefall, I think one should eat and drink copiously of optimism.

  6. This looks deliciously summery and I agree with your sentiments – we must be optimistic, about summer and the state of the world, even if things don’t look too good.
