I woke up this morning and needed a cream tea scone. It was that simple. Necessity being the mother of invention I created this recipe just now and holy cow, it worked.

I also wanted to partly test drive this chicken idea as I’d like to make a version if it when our friend comes to dinner.

I wish radicchio lettuce was not so pricey. I think it’s a beautiful, delicious veg and so vibrant. When I was at the check out, the person ringing up even double checked the price. So I turned it into Continue reading →
