Carpentras is famous for its strawberries. They usually titivate our taste buds from mid-April to the summer. This year, the Spring has been colder with less sunshine and more wind, meaning the strawberries are not as sweet as usual, but this does not bother Philippe, the strawberry wizard from Saint Didier. He delights us with three varieties: Cléry, Daisy and Dream. They are so good that we hardly need to do anything to them, they are perfect for salads, sorbets and soups! Using strawberries with raw fish is very unusual, but I love making recipes from elsewhere with local ingredients... Enjoy! (Isa Lichtenthurm, Métafort)
