    My wife and I will soon be visiting Cornwall. We would like to enjoy a traditional cream tea but do not wish to cause offence. We are unsure if it is appropriate to first apply cream or jam to the scone. We understand that the correct application of cream/jam is very different in Cornwall and Devon and that we may fall foul of hate crime law if we get it wrong. Can anyone please advise?

    Go self-catering and eat the scones away from the gaze of locals.

    You should all come down to the music festival they are holding on the Devon/Cornwall border. Eric Clapton and Paul Weller are both playing with their bands but there's a bit of a debate about who should go on first.

    But either way, the Strawbs are topping the bill.

    No one gives a fuck. You're the poor bastard who'd have to eat it.

    Come on let's have it!!

    Cream first and then jam
    Cos clotted cream is kind of like butter and you wouldn't put butter on top of jam would you?? :p

    Jam first because it's easier to spread cream onto jam than to spread jam onto cream. Obviously.

    What if you dollop but not spread? Eh, eh?

    Also, cream doesn't really resemble butter. Butter is more solid and used more sparingly. And would be horrible in coffee.

    How do you know? In Columbia they put cheese in their hot chocolate.

    Really? Most things can be improved by the addition of cheese, but that might be a bit much.

    I'm curious though.:hmm:

    I ain't lying. I was offered it at a mate's house (he's Sri Lankan, his wife's Columbian) back in London a few years back.

    I bottled out cuz it was too out there, but their kids were yumming it up.

    Cheese And Hot Chocolate Is The Food Combination You Need To Try

    Some dirty Italians at the Illy cafes have decided to mix coffee & dairy in a way I find very disturbing - not just for the pretentious language either:
    "Incontro - A perfect harmony of ricotta and espresso Incontro is a happy encounter when the fresh taste of Ricotta cream comes together with illy espresso under a delicious layer of cold milk blended with cocoa."

    OK ricotta is bland enough to go in sweet puddings and cakes but I have never, ever seen it combined with coffee anywhere in Italy and there must be reasons why.

    I'm told (by mrs lr) that there is a thing where people put butter in coffee. It's called bullet coffee or something. Apparently celebrities use it for weight loss. Sounds horrific.

    There's yak butter tea as well in Mongolia. A somewhat acquired taste I gather.

    Oh butter in tea, that's fine. As long as the butter goes in first, of course. Unless being brewed in the cup, in which case butter last, after the teabag is removed.

    Butter gets in tea when you dip toast in it and it's still fit :thumbs:
