I live down a long lane with strawberry fields on either side and at this time of year and especially with such incredibly warm weather the air is filled with the scent of ripe berries. I plan the menus for my suppers about two or three weeks in advance of each event so I can be as sure as possible that I will be able to get wonderful local produce at the peak of its season. This weekend the pudding features gooseberries, which whilst less fragrant in the field have a wonderful and unique flavour when they have been gently stewed with a little sugar. But the strawberries are calling out to be used too. Lucky then that the next supperclub is only three weeks away and I will certainly be looking to use them.

So if you missed out on tickets for this weekend and fancy a meal that so far is built on the idea of strawberries, them make sure you keep Saturday 10th August free and keep an eye out for more details here.
