One of Wimbledon’s Sweet Traditions-Strawberries and Cream
Strawberries and Cream and Wimbledon. It’s one of the world’s best known sporting events and has been so through three different centuries. Whether you’re a tennis fan or not, a ticket to Wimbledon is a treat. And with it comes one very well known and sweet tradition, that of eating strawberries and cream while at a match.
Something about tennis, strawberries and cream seem to go together in the English psyche. The very taste of strawberries doesn’t just conjure up a green, pollen-filled English summer, but also the thwack of ball on racket. The Wimbledon tournament manages to get through more than 23 tonnes of strawberries and 7,000 litres of cream every year.
