Mid to late June marks Strawberry Season here in Maine. Chef Shanna O’Hea of Academe at The Kennebunk Inn likes to take advantage of the fresh, sweet taste of ripe locally grown strawberries in her desserts. A favorite is Strawberry & Rhubarb Shortcake with Fresh Whipped Cream. This wonderful dessert special is a great way to help your taste buds kick off the summer season.
Shanna’s shortcake was featured in the June 19th edition of the Portland Press Herald – the newspaper’s “Strawberry Edition.” You can get a copy of Chef Shanna’s Strawberry Rhubarb Shortcake recipe here on our site.
