Second string strawberries save the day.

The supermarket strawberries that were bought as replacements for the weak willed artisanal berries, that had fallen at the first hurdle, showed their frail brethren how to get down and dirty with a warm fleshed Charentais melon, and this was before their were anointed with lashings of Cremant de Bourgogne. After that moment of vinous anointment I forgot that I was recording the event and ate them. Sic transit gloria.

  1. I can taste that melon and strawberries! I think I can taste that blue surface too. Weird.

    Sometimes it’s hard to restain yourself. Melon, strawberries and Cremant sound like such a delicious finish to a summer meal.

  3. The stand-ins look glistening and fresh even without the wine addition – a beautiful summer image and dessert. I was hoping you’d tell us what you ate for the other courses too!
