Hello again everyone! Even though I've always been kind of shy about posting on any website, I made a post on here a few days ago about my trip to England that is coming up and I got many amazing suggestions so I figured I would try my luck again. This is a question that has been baffling me for a while. Well, more specifically has been baffling me even more so since last Sunday/Father's Day. Because my father is British, I decided to make him clotted cream and scones. So last week, after I got the clotted cream method written down (pretty easy - there's only a few recipes out there), I started on the scones. Now, I thought this was going to be as easy as pie. It's just a scone, right?
Of course, I was entirely wrong. While browsing through photograzing and the BBC website, I came upon dozens of recipes with several different base ingredients and methods used: Lots of butter or just a bit, baking powder, baking soda and buttermilk, varying amounts of flour and sugar, milk, half and half or cream and different shapes - circles or wedges. I've tried three recipes since I started my search but I still have yet to find that perfectly tall and fluffy scone.
So, now I'm here. Do any of you have a favorite scone recipe? Or have you tried different variations with one coming out on top? Does the shape matter in how high the scones get and what about the space between them on the baking sheet?
Hello everyone! I feel kind of awful for asking about this because... I'm a British citizen. And an American citizen. Mostly American. Okay, I was born and raised here to a wonderfully lovable British father. Unfortunately it's been almost five years since I've visited my family over there and now (gasp) I'll be on a plane destined for heathrow in less than a month! So, this is what I need help with. The last time I was in England I was very sadly neither a foodie or a cook at a restaurant so I have absolutely no idea of where to eat and, of course, far more importantly what to bring back with me. I'll be staying in Swindon for the majority of my trip but I'm planning on going to as many areas (London included of course) as I can while there. Is there anyone out there who could give me a few pointers?
Much thanks in advance!
Hello everyone, this is my first time posting on serious eats although I have been an avid reader here for years. Today, however, I found something so intriguing and amazing that it prompted me to finally make my first post.
While browsing my usual food blogs today, I came across an odd sight. It was a link to a website called The Nudie Foodies.
According to their about us section, this is a group of food bloggers who are baring it all for the creation of a book that will contain pictures of the nude bloggers as well as accompanying recipes. All profits received from the sales of the books will go to a yet to be decided charity for Japan in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit them.
Take a look and post what your thoughts on this are!
