National Strawberry Week

Strawberries are at their very best right now so if you do nothing else this weekend, promise me you will pick up a punnet? Dine on strawberries and cream in front of the Wimbledon finals or tune in here for the best Eton Mess and no-bake strawberry cheesecake recipes! You will also find some healthier ways to enjoy this yummy fruit!

Bord Bia have loads of info on this super fruit- did you know that an average serving of 8 berries = 27 calories?! Another reason to buy Irish strawberries! Head over to the National Strawberry Week page for more.

If cream ain't your thing, try dipping your strawberries in white chocolate ganache!

To make the ganache simply whisk together 250g of good quality white chocolate with 125ml of whipping cream (you'll find out about the different types of cream on today's show!) over a double boiler until melted. Pour over strawberries and enjoy!

If you're out and about this weekend don't forget the Wexford Strawberry Festival is happening, with one of my all-time favourite bands, The Original Rudeboys, headlining Sunday night. This is definitely a festival not to be missed!

How do you eat your strawberries? Let me know in the comments section below.

Enjoy your weekend, stay sweet! x
