 Strawberries in Raspberry Puree

Hull the strawberries, but don't wash them; just gently wipe them with a piece of damp kitchen paper. The raspberries should then be pressed to a pulp through a nylon sieve and mixed with the icing sugar.

Now arrange the strawberries in a bowl (a glass one would show off the attractive colour of this dish), and sit the bowl on some ice cubes that you have arranged in the bottom of another bowl. Mix the raspberry purée into the strawberries, then just before serving top with the whipped cream.
