Memories of Cornwall

After a recent visit to my beloved Cornwall 5 years after having left it, I just had to re-create a Cornish cream tea in mini......light, moist fruit scones, deliciously rich & calorific clotted cream & jam...I'm making myself hungry just thinking about it!


We used to sit in the gorgeous sunshine on the terrace of  a hotel in St Mawes, having arrived by boat on our way home from a fishing trip, or shopping in Falmouth, to look out at the never ending activity of boats on the sparkling waters of the Carrick Roads, while eating one of these gorgeous teas...we needed the strength after a strenuous day at sea......simply heaven in all respects!
Can you tell I still miss it.........
