Mary Cadogan suggests some simple but delicious ways to enjoy the offerings of summer. One of the highlights of every cook's year is the arrival of the first English strawberries of the season. It's not just their sensational flavour and luscious texture that gets our tastebuds tingling - it's the memories of summers past. Once these gorgeous berries arrive, we know that summer is truly here. We can put away our cardigans, dust off the garden furniture and look forward to long, hot days gorging on summer berries. And, as we become increasingly able to buy once-seasonal produce all year round, it's even more of a treat to enjoy the distinctive juicy freshness of Britain's home-grown summer fruits. Eating the first of the fresh raspberries straight from the punnet, setting out a big bowl of cherries for the children to stain their mouths with, and whizzing up milkshakes with the late summer glut are all wonderful pleasures. And when you tire of eating these glorious fruits as nature intended, you can try whipping up this simple but mouth-watering recipe to enjoy with family and friends. This is a simple variation on the strawberries and cream theme. Serve as quickly as possible after making, as the cream can become thick if it's left for too long. To make this for children, use orange juice instead of the wine.
