Each year I debate with myself whether to carry on the tradition of scone making? And this year the decision seemed to have been made for me when I came across not one, but two scone recipes. So, it is time for International Scone Week 2019.
A long standing tradition
In 2011 bloggers around the world gathered to make scones. If you want to know more about how this came about, read Celia’s post. How I would love to sit around the table with Celia and share some of her amazing bread. Celia and I have a connection through our sourdough baking. And whereas my starter is languishing in my fridge, Celia bakes all the time. She makes the most amazing breads and if you are not a fan of bread baking but want to know more about saving our planet, be sure to follow her blog.

I am heading to East London tomorrow and will be on the road all day. We are going away for motor racing and will have limited access to the internet while I am gone. Please forgive me if I don’t reply to comments straight away. I will be back at work on the 5th of August for a couple of hours before I start a week-long celebration of my 50th birthday.
