First Strawberries – Prime Fragole

Today another busy day here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House in the glorious Umbrian countryside, and after a busy day a real treat; the first strawberries from our garden.

This evening I gathered strawberries warmed by the Italian sun and plump from the recent rains, and at dinner combined them with marscapone ice-cream, utterly indulgent and wicked for the waistline! – oh and on  the way to the strawberries I just had to stop at one of the young cherry trees and pluck a ripe cherry – delicious!
