Strawberry Recipes for Wimbledon

Five of the ‘berry’ best strawberry recipes for Wimbledon

The humble strawberry has been synonymous with Wimbledon since the very first tournament, back in 1877, where just 200 spectators attended. Not much has changed since then, although the number of punnets has swelled as rapidly as the number of punters – 34 tonnes of strawberries are generously doused in 10,000 litres of cream to feed approximately 480,000 attendees.

Whether you’ll be watching the matches from the courtside or from your couch-side, take inspiration from our favourite strawberry recipes below to get in the mood for Wimbledon.

Game, set and SNACK!

Strawberry skewers

It may seem like we’ve thrown a curve ball in here, but trust us. Pairing sweet strawberries with the salty & tangy flavours of halloumi, and earthy courgettes creates a surprising mixture of tastes that just works. Plus, it’s ridiculously easy – simply thread alternating ingredients onto skewers and grill until the halloumi is delicately charred and crisp.
