I love strawberries and now that we are in season, I buy them weekly from our local supplier. During these last weeks that we must stay at home, I’ve been spending much more time in the kitchen, cooking, baking, making sourdough bread and pizza. I have also photographed most of the recipes I made, that’s the way I found to fulfill the void left by the lack of photo shoots with my clients. So, strawberries, this was a simple, fresh and not too sweet recipe I made last week. But, if you ask me, how I prefer to eat strawberries, the answer is, au naturel, of course!
About this dessert name, strawberry fool, it seems that its origin is English, but the meaning of fool (in this case) derives from the French word fouler, that means to mash or to press the fruit. If you have another explanation please tell me, I would like to know.
300 ml cream
120 gr sugar (only used 100 gr)
