Rosemary infused strawberries

Rosemary infused strawberries

I left Paris yesterday for the countryside and this feels so nice to be away from town for a few days, particularly with the heatwave hitting the country. With all this heat, you’re most probably looking for fresh dessert recipes, fruity and herbaceous, and this one is such a nice one for summer. I love strawberries and this red fruit makes a perfect basis for a light summer dessert! Most of the time, I just feel like a simple salad might be a little basic to serve, especially when we’re hosting lunch or BBQ with family and friends.

Clafoutis really is a good option to consume cherries cooked (baked) while respecting the unprocessed product’s quality. Trust me, you truly won’t regret trying summer recipe out!
