With much talk of Nigel’s adventures in Bude I think Darrell has been suffering from a little clotted cream envy of late ……….
……. so much so, that he decided to book a table, all to himself, at Gluttons in Tettenhall to indulge in some gentile, unencumbered Darrell time …….
Darrell said, on his return, that he had indeed found himself again after a hectic couple of weeks and that he managed to reconnect to his inner Paul Hollywood/Mary Berry! What is he like?
After sampling a little of all that was proffered on his three tier cake stand, he decided to finish on an ultimate high, to wit the scone with cream and jam. He said that he couldn’t be bothered to worry about the etiquette involved in which order to place the cream and the jam on his scone …. he just went for the butter, jam and cream approach ….. before swirling it all together with his knife ……..
It was his tea party and he would swirl if he wanted to …..nom nom nom!!!! And no, he didn’t eat EVERYTHING on the table, he asked for a doggy bag and bought most of it back to Castle Greysquirrel for Nigel’s and my tea, which was most welcome …… after all, a cake shared is a cake halved, or thirded in our case!
