For today’s post, I am hosting a Wimbledon-inspired brunch. Why brunch, you may wonder? Because, for us American fans watching the early-morning matches, breakfast has become a huge part of the event. We like to gather with friends and family, and many of our guests have children my own children’s ages, so I like to make my brunch as kid-friendly as possible. We serve delicious waffles for the breakfast-lovers, croissant sandwiches for those with less of a sweet tooth and, of course, strawberries and cream for everyone. Nothing says “Wimbledon Brunch” like strawberries and cream. Strawberries are Wimbledon’s most famous snack because strawberries are in season during the time the tournament is played, and also because strawberries were a fashionable thing to eat in Victorian England, when the Championship was founded. When you think of Wimbledon, imagine an English garden, guests all dressed in white, tennis being played and English berries being served. Strawberries and cream are now one of the best and most symbolic things served courtside!
In case you are new to Wimbledon, it is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and is one of the most prestigious events in sports today. Taking place over a two-week period, the top stars in tennis come together to compete on the ever-challenging and less common grass-court surface.
