Royal Ascot, Wimbledon and now the Henley Royal Regatta. Three summer events held over a short span of time in the UK, which are all perfect opportunities to devour Spanish summer fruit, and especially Spain’s delicious cherries.

Held from today, July 1st, through July 5th, the Henley Royal Regatta attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world to enjoy five days of races down the Thames River. Spectators and participants in this internationally renowned event, often quench their thirst (today is supposed to be the hottest day of the year in the UK) with delicious Spanish picotas, the wonderfully sweet and juicy cherries that hail from Spain’s Jerte Valley in Extremadura.

Whether whipped into ice cream, made into a pie or jam, or enjoyed fresh, with or without cream, these sweet treats make the perfect addition to any regatta picnic basket or meal.
