Strawberry season nears end

There’s still time to get out in the sun and pick your own strawberries. The Mattituck Lions Club Strawberry Festival was last weekend and we’re still serving strawberry shortcake with local strawberries at the restaurant. They’re using the same recipe Larry Forgione did when I worked at An American Place in the early ’90s. The story goes that it’s James Beard’s mother’s recipe and the secret is hard-cooked egg yolks in the shortcake dough. Makes it really rich but still crumbly.
