The strawberries grown in the Aveyron are special, prompting George Christopher Davies to document them in his book, Our Home in the Aveyron. "Great quantities of strawberries are grown between the vines. These are of a small kind somewhat larger than our wild strawberries: they come in season earlier than our garden strawberries, and are much prized for their fine flavour." These are special, heritage varieties that grow only in France. Although you might not be able to buy French heritage berries at your local market, try these French strawberry recipes in your own kitchen for some European flair. Bon appetit!
