It’s the first week of Wimbledon, and the big news is not on the court, but in the price freezing of Strawberries & Cream – Its all over the press. A generous serving during the two-week tournament, will now only cost you £2.50.
Nothing says British summer more so than Wimbledon and Strawberries & Cream, but if you cast your net beyond SW9, the humble fruit takes on a whole new meaning.
We did our research to find the most expensive strawberry in the world and the winner is…Arnaud’s restaurant in New Orleans, they serve a strawberry dessert for $3.9m Dollars!!! – Beautifully served in a marinade of port, red wine, spices and citrus with vanilla ice cream, and of course, a diamond ring in it.
If you fancy something a little less expensive, but more special than the average tournament-strawberry?
Not far outside of Beijing you will find the ‘Wander Garden’. A strawberry farm, selling their wares for 45 Euro a pound (a tad more expensive than at your local supermarket). They are nurtured in soil imported from China’s northwest, and refreshed with mineral water heated to a cozy 20 degrees in a specially designed green house in the middle of Beijing’s’ winter season.
So the choice is yours order a punnet from Beijing, fly to New Orleans or just enjoy Kent’s finest served on the streets of London.
