Since we had our strawberry patch 15 years ago, I have tried many recipes base on strawberry. And our all time favourite is the Fraisier. A typical French pastry that can be found in any bakery in France. I like to use the French strawberry - Gariguette to make the Fraisier during summer time. It taste simply divine. With a little imagination I've made a Kiwisier too.
Captain Wentworth had no fortune. He had been lucky in his profession; but spending freely, what had come freely, had realized nothing. But he was confident that he should soon be rich: full of life and ardour, he knew that he should soon have a ship, and soon be on a station that would lead to everything he wanted. He had always been lucky; he knew he should be so still. Such confidence, powerful in its own warmth, and bewitching in the wit which often expressed it, must have been enough for Anne; but Lady Russell saw it very differently. His sanguine temper, and fearlessness of mind, operated very differently on her. She saw in it but an aggravation of the devil. It only added a dangerous character to himself. He was brilliant, he was headstrong. Lady Russell had little taste for wit, and of anything approaching to imprudence a horror. She deprecated the connexion in every light.
