If the weather is anything like it is in Paris at the moment then I have the perfect antidote for it: homemade crumpets and long pepper spiced curd. Head over to designsponge where my recipe (and more pics) is featured in ‘in the kitchen with’ this week.

Teatime at La Cocotte

29 Jun 2008

teatime

Oh so British teatime at La Cocotte on the 29th June 2008. Everyone had a hand on making their own scones, a demonstration on the Art of drinking tea (and how to drink it correctly) and of course a proper teatime with china cups, jam, clotted cream and scones fresh out of the oven.

Like peas & carrots, cookies & milk or fish & chips, clotted cream and scones are a match made in heaven and essential for a proper English teatime. The closest thing to clotted cream is probably mascarpone, although it’s a lot whiter in colour and less heavier.
I smuggled some back from the UK last week. So in between coding for my new site I found some time to whip up some scones for Sunday tea time (to my friends delight).
They’re best eaten warm with lashings of clotted cream and jam and not to forget TEA! If you eat them the next day, warm them up in the oven as they tend to turn a bit brick hard when cold.
