Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

Devon Cream Tea – which is the right way?

Leave a comment

So, yesterday we were out at the Buccaneer Pub in Erimi having lunch with our good friends Barry, Vera, Helen & Dave.

We do manage to cover a multitude of subjects during our get togethers and in the space of a couple of hours we somehow managed to get on to cream teas! I think it was because someone mentioned Anna’s Tea Room in Souni…

Well apparently it seems that the way to do a Devon Cream Tea requires putting the cream on the scone first and then the jam, otherwise it isn’t a true “Devon” cream tea.

We reckon it’s pretty impossible to put jam on top of cream without losing it all – so, for all you Devon people out there please come and put us out of our misery. Is this story for real, or not?

Just to remind you what a Cream Tea looks like…. mmmmm 🙂

This is the way we do ours. Jam first and then the cream.
