    Chef Kate's Note:

    If you are lucky enough to pick your own berries, pick nice ripe little ones for this so you don't have to slice them--not that sliced strawberries won't look and taste lovely as well.

      These were great and so easy. Don't forget to add the "accumulated juices", it's what takes this dish over the top!!

      AHA ! Chef Kate, you must have eated in one of the same small restaurants as we, and THIS is one of the ULTIMATE simple but exquisite desserts served !! I can't wait for strawberry season to make this, but MUST hide a tad of the really good Calvados we brought back. Thanks for the memory of a lovely evening in a VERY small town in Normandy ! Janey

      Lovely, simple fruit dessert and definitely elegant enough for company. You've done it again, Kate.
