Cooks should not be allowed anywhere near strawberries

Cooks should not be allowed anywhere near strawberries, because cooks cook. And cooking destroys everything wonderful about strawberries. Strawberries do not need sugar. Or lemon juice. Or liquor. Or ice cream. Or cream. 

Strawberries just need to be washed and tasted.  Each strawberry should be tasted on its own, in isolation, to get the full loveliness and mystery of the taste.
