In honour of one of the finest sporting events of the year - which is also peak strawberry season here in Britain - we thought we'd share our favourite strawberry recipes to enjoy alongside the tennis. Or at any time you please...   Kristian's Eton Mess Kristian Robson, Proprietor of Oliver Brown   Ingredients 500g British strawberries 1 tbsp sugar 4 meringue nests, roughly broken up 400ml double cream Handful of chopped pistachio nuts A few leaves of fresh mint   Method Roughly chop the strawberries into halves.
