Your cream tea needs you!
Some fierce rhetoric on the airwaves this morning by all accounts.
It would appear, from Cornish sources at least, that Devon is trying to steal a march on the Cream Tea battlefront by applying to register the Devon Cream Tea. Across the border in Cornwall there is foodie outrage. Not only do the two counties disagree on whether the cream or the jam goes on the scone first, they both lay claim to having invented the tea shop staple first. Wars have been fought over less.
Foodies South West is keeping it’s backside firmly on the fence on this one, like a culinary UN we urge restraint on both sides. As a late interloper to these parts, I am happy as long as a scone enters my gob.
Therefore I open it up to the floor – where’s the best place you’ve had a cream tea?
