Is there anything in the world better than fresh strawberries and cream? On our honeymoon last October, my husband and I headed for the local strawberry spot, Humbugs, close to Hakgala gardens, to indulge. And indulge we did. Though they offer all kinds of strawberry (and other) goodies, we stuck to the basics- strawberries with a generous dollop of cream, sprinkled with sugar on top. We decided to eat it out in their garden, overlooking the hills, despite the tendrils of mist that was fast enveloping the landscape. It was truly a magnificent tea time treat, with a magnificent view and climate. .
We even made two friends, a dog and a cat. The dog kept a safe distance while wagging a friendly tail, while the cat became more familiar, rubbing her chin on our feet quite comfortably. We thought we were naturally cat-people, until we discovered her true intentions; the cream. See the hilarious pictures below, for a pictorial account of a cat on a mission.
Oh for the love of strawberries and cream :). The strawberries were fresh, from their fields, and the cream, was well, fresh and creamy. Such simple ingredients, such a decadent dessert, these things never cease to amaze me.
