I have only been to Wimbledon once in my life and that was 28 years ago in my final days of school. I remember it well though. The sun shone and it was a scorcher. I wore sunglasses all day and ended up with a big ribbing from class mates for having "panda" eyes and we all got star struck seeing Cliff Richard watch Sue Barker play.
Ahh the good ole days!
Nowadays I dont tend to take much interest in sport tho still enjoy a lovely bowl of strawberries and cream in summer.
This week one of our customers treated us to some strawberries that she had picked from a local farm. Sam said to me could i make something wonderful with them!! I dont quite know about wonderful but i could definately make something!
Just by chance we had made a chocolate sponge the day before that had broken in half as we tried to wrap it. So i broke it further into chunky pieces and put in the bottom of a sundae glass.
I then sliced the strawberries and put on top.
I melted 200g plain chocolate in a pan and slowly stirred in 150ml boiling water and 3 tbsps strawberry jam. Once all combined i poured over my strawberry/sponge and filled the glass. I put them to cool and set in the fridge.When they had set i piped on some stiffly whisked double cream and sprinkled with chocolate shavings.
Comment of the day today from a customer was that "the trifle was to die for!" How chuffed was i!!!
