As we head into berry season, I have to admit, I'm more than a little excited.
In Germany, there are whole issues of cooking magazine dedicated to strawberry recipes in anticipation of the season's crop. Perhaps it's all those years spent there anticipating strawberries.
When I was home in Germany a few weeks ago, a version of this strawberry torte jumped out at me from one of those magazines. I added basil to my version which I believe amped up the flavor. This is a perfect dessert to complement your Memorial Day barbecue menu.
