Cooking Up a Field Trip: Tea for Two
The first scones I ever had were in Australia when I visited for the first time over 15 years ago. They are so different from the traditional English version that for years I was completely confused. Where an English scone (or maybe just the American version of an English scone?) is more dense and crumbling, an Australian scone is more light and flaky, kind of like a biscuit. Are you confused yet? I know I am.
But when you have tea at the Sir Stamford, it doesn't really matter what a proper scone is. It's just good. And what's more, they have a special tea service for kids so it was just that much better because I got to share a favorite indulgence with the Kid.
