Gather Ye Strawberries…

In Food on August 21, 2009 at 11:03 am


Strawberry season is coming to a close, so before they’re gone, I urge you to grab some this weekend. You will thank me—but mostly my friend Vincent—that you did. The other night Vincent came over for burgers (grilled to perfection by Mr. Foodinista), bringing with him an incredible brown butter shortcake with strawberries and whipped cream. The recipe hails from the New York Times, and tastes like pure summer. The brown butter shortcake—oh my god, so rich, so buttery, so delicious. I’m told the dessert made its heralded debut in The Pines on Fire Island last month, and its maiden West Coast appearance Wednesday night was equally lauded. In fact, it was so freaking good that I ungraciously demanded that he leave the lion’s share of the brown butter shortcake and all the berries behind. With friends like me, who needs shortcake?

  1. Sorry, darlin’, the recipe lost me at ‘turn on the oven.’ It’s been in the 100s here. But the cold strawberries are lovely.
