Game, set and match: Wimbledon-inspired baking
Time to stock up on the strawberries and cream, and pop the Pimm’s in the fridge – it’s the Wimbledon final this weekend.
Whoever you’re rooting for on Sunday, Wimbledon weekend wouldn’t be complete without some delicious sweet treats.
The one quintessential foodie feature of Wimbledon is the perfect combination of strawberries and cream. According to the official website, 10,000 litres of cream and a whopping 28,000 kg of strawberries are eaten at the tournament each year.
While there’s no definitive answer as to why strawberries are so popular at the tournament, it’s thought to simply be a combination of coincidental circumstances –strawberries being in season, and the fact that back in Victorian times, strawberries had become very fashionable to eat (particularly as part of afternoon tea).
If you’re watching the finals this weekend with a big gathering of friends and family, or simply enjoying a quiet night in, we know exactly what will go perfectly with your wonderful Wimbledon weekend.
