    Date Scones Recipe | A Kiwi Classic

    Piping hot, fluffy scones with mouth watering nuggets of dates, topped with butter melting into their hot surface. If you keep reading, consider yourself warned that this date scones recipe is addictive – made with simple store cupboard ingredients, they are ridiculously easy and scrumptious. 

    Date Scone Recipe

    Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah. Date Scones. These, savoury muffins and pikelets (aka “scotch pancakes” for my Brits) are cornerstones of my Kiwi childhood. Memories of the kitchen full of sunshine, the smell of fresh baking and all us kids desperately trying to get hold of the hot delicacies. Now, I’d eat them on their own on a cosy winter afternoon or perhaps sneak them into afternoon tea.

    Anzac Biscuits | A Very Kiwi Recipe

    I’m often asked for examples of classic New Zealand food, and to be honest, I struggle to answer as it’s such a multicultural country. Except for Hangi, Bacon & Egg Pie and maybe Pavlova (let’s not open that Australasian kettle of arguments), ANZAC Biscuits are perhaps one of the most iconic Kiwi recipes. They’re excellent for curing homesickness.

The only problem was that I was too busy travelling to book it in for an age…London

    Luckily, one of my favourite partners-in-mischief rolled into London fresh from New York, which gave us the perfect excuse to daydream alongside the Eurostar trains rolling themselves to Paris, Brussels & The Netherlands.

    Four Seasons Afternoon Tea | The Burlington

    Park Lane is a beautiful place to while away an afternoon, especially when a stand filled with Four Seasons Afternoon Tea delicacies has been gently placed before you. Disclosure: we were guests of the Four Seasons Hotel, but all my musings are very much original.

    Inspired by the historic halls of the world-famous arcade, Executive Pastry Chef David Oliver has created five bespoke pastries that take you on a sensorial journey, mirroring the visual experience you would have through the jewellery, watch, fragrance, fashion, beauty and housewares boutiques of Burlington Arcade.

    Luxury Afternoon Tea in London: The Grosvenor House Hotel

    The lushly appointed Grosvenor House Hotel has a lounge in which you’ll want to linger a little longer, overlooking the leafy boughs of Hyde Park. Especially when the table in front of you is set with a glass of champagne and afternoon tea winks at your from it’s silver stand. Disclaimer: We were invited guests of the Grosvenor House Hotel, but all dreamy metaphors are very much my own.

    Every element of the decor and delectable tea stand are a poetic ode to the tree boughs across Park Lane – they seem so close that they’re almost touchable.
