21 May - National Strawberries and Cream Day in USA
The combination of strawberries and cream is said to have first appeared at one of these feasts in 1509. The winning combination of strawberries and cream was introduced by Thomas Wolsey, a right hand man to King Henry VIII. It was then served to spectators of tennis matches (at a court in Thomas' palace) and the perfect snack was born! Seeing as Henry VIIIís court fed at least 600 hungry lords and ladies twice a day, you can imagine the chefís desperate need for a pudding which was quick, tasty, and required no cooking whatsoever. Cream had previously been considered a peasant food - the Turkey Twizzler of its day - but the dish went down a storm.
