Saturday scone feast!
Scone, a favorite of mine dealing with chilly weather. It’s a nice idea to deal with a craving for something warming. Whether it goes with soup or not doesn’t matter. It will never spoil the grateful pleasure of the season at this time.
Even if there is no confit or clotted cream, scone time is incredibly superb at all times. Get me that, no need to get to make a plan coming up something amazing.
Besides with Lemon Bergamot tea and Goji Berry Rose tea respectively.
I. The first course
1. Pomelo Scone
Double cream based scone. Added a tiny bit of butter. It’s a good fit for a catchy scone. Crisp on the outside, soft and moist in the middle. Compared to the traditional and authentic scone, way better fluffy and yet airy. You should try it.
2. Wormwood Matcha Macadamia Barberries Scone
Inspired by Ke Jia ground tea(客家擂茶) biscuits and cookies.
Ke Jia ground tea is a southern Chinese tea based beverage, which means It has the other ingredients such as tree nuts, seeds, grains, herbs and spices. This composition basically stems from their living environment likely so-called Tibetan 酥油茶(butter tea).
That’s the reason It’s close to the gruel as a meal supplement at times. But most of all, It is consumed as a beverage nowadays.
Hakka diaspora population brought it to own immigration. Taiwanese Ke Jia Lei Cha is the most famous version of that because relatively the community maintain own heritage.
According to the custom, Ke Jia women were evaluated by Lei Cha which made by themselves. Certainly there is the basis as a starting point, on that, they need to draw out own version. Not only the formulation such as taste, scent, flavor, texture and but also the performance. Probably that point inclines performing self pounding tea in contemporary fine dining.
Anyway, for these reasons, often leftovers should be made out of something like a preserved food. Lei Cha biscuit is one of those, there are many different versions.
It’s a butter based scone. Plus, a hint of buttermilk gave an outstanding texture. Despite using just little, it always comes out very gleefully. Lush, soft and moist.
