Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

This simplified version of sangria is the perfect drink for a summer night.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of strawberry wine. Strawberries have started appearing at farmers' markets now that it's spring, and we couldn't be more excited. When it comes to combining wine and fruit, the go-to is typically sangria. Simplify that but cutting out the juice and just dropping a few strawberries in a glass of red wine. Instead of making a giant batch of sangria for a party, this drink is great for a quiet summer night in.

6 Delicious Ways to Pair Strawberries and Wine

As the oldest AVA on the Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley has been a wine-growing hub for decades. But that’s not the only thing that grows well in our valley’s Mediterranean climate. Santa Maria Valley is known far and wide for producing deliciously sweet strawberries. In fact, California is the largest strawberry producer in the United States! You can almost always track down a carton of Santa Maria Valley Strawberries in your local supermarket.

As we practice social distancing in these uncertain times, there’s no better opportunity to order wine online from one of the region’s 34 winery tasting rooms, pick up a carton of berries, and enjoy a tasting experience worth staying inside for.

Sweet Strawberries and Cambria Winery Pinot Noir

Who said sweet and sweet don’t go together? The tones of red fruits in a Pinot Noir pair exceptionally well with the powerful taste of ripe strawberries. Cambria Winery and Vineyard offers a variety of excellent Pinot Noirs that boast aromas of fruits such as blackberries, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, pomegranates and more. Any one of these wines partners wonderfully with strawberries.

Green Strawberries and Rancho Sisquoc Sauvignon Blanc

Strawberries don’t need to be ripe to have a good time! Green strawberries are renowned for their tartness and flaunt notes of green grass and kiwi. A Sauvignon Blanc from Rancho Sisquoc Winery perfectly balances this tartness with acidity to create a flavorful combination. Rancho Sisquoc ages their Sauvignon Blanc in French oak to add lemon flavors and produce a bright, crisp finish. Together, green strawberries and Sauvignon Blanc create a pleasing harmony defined by tart flavors.

Strawberries with Riverbench Rosé

Rosé with strawberries is a simple, yet piquant, combination. The gentle tastes of rose petal, orange blossom and strawberry that you’ll find in the Rosé of Pinot Noir at Riverbench Winery pairs perfectly with the intense, tart flavor of fresh strawberries. It’s a fruity combination made in pairing heaven. Whole clusters of dark and deliciously ripened Pinot Noir were pressed gently in the making of this wine, which means it’s light in color and high in quality. A glass of Rosé with fresh strawberries makes for a perfect snack or dessert.

Presqu’ile Pinot Noir Soaked Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

As if chocolate-covered strawberries could get any better. All you need are strawberries, chocolate, and a bottle of Pinot Noir. Presqu’ile Winery produces exceptional Pinot Noirs, characterized by Santa Maria Valley’s sandalwood spice and bright fruits. To bring this savory treat to life, soak your strawberries in the wine overnight and dip them in the chocolate of your choice the next day.

Strawberry Cheesecake with Cottonwood Canyon Chardonnay

The creamy and rich nature of cheesecake makes it the perfect partner for a wine with scents of fruit and acidity. Cottonwood Canyon Vineyard and Winery Chardonnay has a citrusy taste defined by flavors of lemon, apples and oranges. The Chardonnay is aged with oak and boasts hints of vanilla to enhance your palette. Taken together, a slice of light and fresh strawberry cheesecake couples happily with a smooth glass of Chardonnay.

Strawberry Salad with Foxen Sauvignon Blanc

A fresh salad topped with strawberries is delicious on its own, but even better paired with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Foxen Vineyard and Winery ferments and ages their Sauvignon Blanc in French oak to produce crisp, flavorful wine. The notes of fruit such as lemon, apples and pineapples give a nice acidic contrast to the salad and its creamy dressing

As you can see, there are so many different ways to combine Santa Maria Valley wine and strawberries to create a savory tasting experience. Don’t let social distancing keep you from trying one of these pairings–order a bottle online today and taste for yourself!

Cook's Note:

You can use angel food cake, pound cake, or sponge cake for this recipe.

You can use your choice of raspberry, cherry, or strawberry gelatin, either sugar-free or with sugar.

I prefer using REAL whipped cream to a frozen and thawed topping but only if the dessert is to be consumed on the day of preparation.

Some folks like to add sherry, jam, more layers, or less layers. It's a do your own thing! As well, you can customize the fruit, Jell-O(R), and pudding according to the fruits you have available, and frozen and canned work well in a pinch. Bananas, mandarin oranges, and blueberries are favourites and the presentation is always terrific!

This cake is nothing more than a traditional Passover sponge cake that is too sweet due to the added wine. The family and the cook vote "Not a do-over." Skip this one. There are much better Passover recipes available.

This is a really good recipe. I have made 2 of these cakes for the last 4 Passsovers (large Seder gathering). I bake it in 2 9x13" pans and we cut it in squares. If you have ever made other Passover cake recipes and then try this one you will realize how superior it is. Most Passover cakes tend to be very dry and a little tasteless (and I have tried lots!) This recipe is moist, fruity and delicious. This year I am going to try baking it in one large pan - I hope that works well, it will save a little time.

please try this recipe! it makes a light and flavorful cake, and the strawberries are great with it. i agree about using an electric mixer and definitely make sure the eggs are room temperature in order to acheive maximum volume. i've even substituted splenda for the sugar, and it came out fine. i come from a family of chocoholics, but everyone raved about this dessert.

I don't recommend making this one without an electric hand mixer. However, I've made this cake three times now and everybody seems to like it. I usually prepare a basic chocolate glaze to drizzle over the top. Don't let it sit between mixing and baking  the thicker batter might settle at the bottom.

I am with Nikki from BC. Try the recipes first and then add your own twist before you criticize the recioe that has been kitchen tested by Bon Appetit or Gourmet. These folks have been cooking far longer than most readers, so show some respect for excellence already established!

I haven't made this cake yet, but for the last person that left a rating, you didn't make this cake either. I'm all for putting your own spin on a recipe, but when you change everything about the original recipe, it always amazes me that people rate it and say it's not good.

I made the Wine Cake. However, I used club soda instead of the wine. This made the cake less calories. Also, I folded in dates and nuts into the batter. Made the cake better. I don't really care for passover cakes. Too eggy.

"She had bought red currants slightly damaged (or they would not have oozed so speedily), in order to make that iced red-currant fool of which she had so freely partaken at Miss Mapp’s last bridge party. That was a very scurvy trick, for iced red-currant fool was an invention of Miss Mapp’s, who, when it was praised, said that she inherited the recipe from her grandmother. "

Fooled you! The classic puree of fruit and custard, the fruit fool (whether it be strawberry, gooseberry, raspberry, rhubarb, or blackberry) has nothing in particular to do with April Fool's Day! And although food historians do not agree on the origin of its name, fool/foole is first mentioned as a dessert in 1598 with recipes beginning to appear in cookery books by the mid 17th century. There are even two classic fruitless fools dating from the 17th and 18th centuries - the Norfolk Fool and the Westminster Fool (which have the addition of cake, similar to trifles, with and without the addition of sack sherry). Regardless of ingredients, these are fools to suffer gladly. Be a dancing fool today! Recipes included!

Strawberry Fool

The classic puree of fruit and custard, the fruit fool (whether it be strawberry, redcurrant, gooseberry, raspberry, rhubarb, or blackberry) has nothing in particular to do with fooling anyone or fools!

Although food historians do not agree on the origin of its name, fool/foole is first mentioned as a dessert in 1598 with recipes beginning to appear in cookery books by the mid 17th century. There are even two classic fruitless fools dating from the 17th and 18th centuries - the Norfolk Fool and the Westminster Fool (which have the addition of cake, similar to trifles, with and without the addition of sack sherry).

A "fool" is a classic British dessert generally made by folding pureed stewed fruit into sweet custard . Modern fool recipes often substitute whipped cream .

Amazing Strawberry Recipes Roundup

Save this amazing roundup of fresh strawberry desserts and beverages for Valentine’s Day and spring.

I love strawberries, they are just so versatile. With greenhouse farming, strawberries may be available throughout the year now, but the best berries are those that are locally grown and start bearing fruit in late spring. Juicy, ripe, red strawberries are a great snack on their own, and even better when used in delectable treats like cakes, parfaits, ice creams and beverages.

Here is a roundup of my best strawberry recipes from the blog and also from other lovely bloggers who love strawberries as much as I do! Pick out the recipes that you would like to make for Valentine’s Day next week, then bookmark this page for later or when you go strawberry picking in the spring!

Baking With Strawberries

One of the best uses for fresh strawberries is to bake with them. Cakes, muffins, sweet breads and even soufflés are perfect vehicles for fresh berries.

  • Strawberry Pound Cake: This fresh and buttery strawberry pound cake loaf is made better with the addition of sour cream to the batter, which makes it moist and incredibly flavorful. Serve it up for dessert or lightly toasted for breakfast the next day.

  • Strawberry Focaccia Bread: This Italian classic is given a sweet twist with fresh berries and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon sugar on top.
  • Strawberry Soufflé: Where do I even begin on this classic dessert? Making delightfully light and airy soufflé is not that hard if you follow my tips in this post.

No-bake Strawberry Desserts

Sometimes, the last thing we want to do is turn on the oven and wait for it to pre-heat. Some of these desserts do not need any cooking at all, while some might call for a component to be made quickly on the stove-top. But they are all excellent make-ahead desserts and perfect for spring parties and potlucks.

  • Strawberry Fool: Light, fruity and creamy, this delicious no-cook strawberry fool dessert is the perfect way to enjoy balmy spring nights. It can be made with any kind of berries, but of course, strawberries are the best. Needless to say, it can be made ahead and is perfect for entertaining as well.
  • Eggless Strawberry Mousse: Light as air and made with real strawberries, this eggless strawberry mousse is an easy no-cook dessert.
  • Strawberry Chia Falooda Parfait: This pretty layered dessert is inspired by the Persian dessert falooda. Made with delicious chia strawberry fruit spread, sweet vermicelli and simple rose flavored pudding, this lightened-up falooda parfait recipe is as easy as it is delicious.
  • Lemon Crepes With Strawberry Cream Cheese Filling: Delicate lemon crepes filled with strawberry flavored whipped cream cheese and sweet berries is a delightful weekend brunch. Did you know that crepes can be made ahead and assembled with the filling just before serving? Make these to treat your loved ones to a special breakfast on birthdays, anniversaries or Valentine’s Day.

Strawberry Frozen Treats & Beverages

I’m dreaming of the day when I can guzzle fresh strawberry lemonade by the gallon and make my favorite strawberry popsicles. They cannot be any simpler to make at home and you know exactly what ingredients go into them.
