Eureka – Strawberry Tiramisu!
There is a glut of strawberries in the UK this year – they are going fairly cheap in the supermarkets – consequently a few punnets always seem to be hanging about in our fridge. Meanwhile, we also had a ‘glut’ of another type at home: Savoiardi biscuits (the result of overbuying). So I think – hey, why not combine the two? Strawberries and Savoiardi in the style of a tiramisu.
Brilliant! Is this an original thought? Have I witnessed the birth of a unique recipe? Surely nobody could have thought of a strawberry tiramisu – could they?
What is the word for not wanting to see if anybody has ever thought of an idea by resisting the urge to search online for fear that the idea will be emblazoned over the screen a hundred times, thereby cruelly dismissing the originators hopeful ambition? The German language could have one; it is the opposite of ‘schadenfreude’? i.e. not gloating over the misfortune of others – but dreading the fortune of others…
There are indeed hundreds of strawberry tiramisu’s. Here is my recipe to add to the list.
