Think of Wimbledon and you probably think of strawberries and cream, Pimm’s on the lawn and hot summer days (or perhaps just the odd shower, now and then!).
In recent years, British number one Andy Murray has been among the favourites, memorably winning the tournament in 2013, making it an even more British affair.
However, our Scandi friends are keen to lay claim to a bit of SW19, particularly in the form of the legendary Bjorn Borg. Sweden’s most famous player won no fewer than five consecutive Wimbledon titles, developing a winning streak that looked almost unbeatable.
He was also involved in what many argue was the greatest ever tennis match, the Wimbledon final against John McEnroe in 1980, which lasted almost four hours across five sets.
While Bjorn has had his day, and there’s little chance of his success being repeated this summer, we at Baltzersen’s will be celebrating throughout Wimbledon anyway. If you’re looking for a way to enter into the spirit of Wimbledon in Harrogate, look no further!
We’re combining the best of Scandinavian treats (our famous waffles, of course) with some brilliant British grub – delicious strawberries from Makin’s of Yorkshire and cream from local organic supplier Acorn Dairy.
This is a limited edition waffle topping, only available during Wimbledon fortnight (27 June to 10 July). Best of all, it is included in our half price waffles offer from 3-4.30pm on weekdays, so it’s a perfect summer afternoon treat.
Whether you’re supporting Andy, or cheering on Finland’s Henri Kontinan or Sweden’s Johanna Larsson in the doubles competitions, you’ll be welcome to celebrate Wimbledon in Harrogate with our Wimbledon Waffles.
