It’s Strawberry Season in Provence a Recipe to Celebrate

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

The new fraises garriguettes have arrived in Aix and my goodness are they good!

Some years ago, La Provence published a recipe for a tiramisu with raspberries but I’ve found strawberries are just as delicious, and this is now a firm favourite.

First of the season strawberries

Tiramisu aux Fraises

Ingredients:

250g strawberries, sliced
250g mascarpone
3 eggs – separated
75g sugar
lemon zest or a little juice
10 biscuits ‘Roses de Reims’

Directions:

  1. Crush the biscuits to fine pink powder and put half in the base of 4 glasses
  2. Put mascarpone in a dish and soften it with a fork
  3. Beat egg yolks with sugar and lemon. Mix into the mascarpone
  4. Whip the egg whites until firm and fold into the mixture
  5. Now for the layering: add half strawberries to biscuit layer then cover with cream mixture, and repeat. Decorate with a little of the pink biscuit powder and a slice of strawberry.

La Provence said this is a recipe for 4 but it is quite filling; I do 6 smaller portions. The Roses de Reims biscuits (pink lady’s fingers) are available in Monoprix.

Bon Appetit!

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
