A Strawberry Grows in Brooklyn

Or Queens, but close enough. Our good friends and family at Brooklyn Grange have been growing some strawberries, partly due to my persistent urging. This season they had to be beheaded early to make for a better harvest next season. But some little soldiers lived on and they're delicious! My lovely friend Cathy (illustrious writer of Not Eating Out in New York and Lunch at Sixpoint) and I ate some this past weekend while at a  delicious dinner party cooked by Ben Walmer of Highlands Dinner Club. Look how pretty!
