If The Wimbledon Tennis Championships are on then there are two things you can be sure of:
- it must be raining and...
- the best English strawberries are in season.
Strawberries and cream are as much a part of the English social sport season (tennis, rowing, polo, Ascot) as hot dogs are part of a baseball game.
Why not get into the mood for the Wimbledon women's finals tomorrow and the men's finals on Sunday, by whipping up a batch of Eton Mess, a scrumptious and traditional English strawberries and cream dessert, and contemplating the fact that Wimbledon is the world's only Grand Slam Tennis Tournament still played on grass.
Then see what else is going on in July in the UK that might be a good excuse for eating more berries and cream.
