      This is our very own traditional mini postbox in our atelier London store!

      Today is St. George's day! St. George is the patron saint of England, legend has it that he slayed a dragon to save the kings daugher and then turned the village into christians. I think as with all the patron saints dates it is a nice excuse to remember particuar dishes (from a foody point of view) or traditions that a country has, whether you are from there, have relatives from there or are even living there why not get invloved.

      On that note there has never been a better excuse for afternoon tea and scones (how ever you like to pronouce them). I have to admit I do love a nice cup of hot tea, they all laugh at me because I brought in my own tea bags and mug to work.

      If you fancy making some tasty sultana scones to go with your nice hot cup of tea here is a recipe to try out!

      Sultana Scones

      Ingredients for 6 people

      • Self raising flour: 225g
      • Milk: 40cl
      • Butter room temperature: 75g
      • Flour: 50g
      • Sugar: 40g
      • Sultanas: 100g
      • Egg: 1


      Pre heat the oven to220 degrees

      Start by sifting the flour with a pinch of salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the butter; this must be at room temperature. Rub in using your hands until the mix looks like bread crumbs. Add the sugar and mix in. In a small bowl whisk the egg with the milk and start to add this to the rubbed-in mixture; mix with a pallet knife. Bring the mix together with your hands. It should be soft but not sticky. Now you can add the sultanas and incorporate these to the dough.

      Flour a work surface and rolling pin and start to gently roll out the dough. Take care not to roll thinner than 1 inch. Use a stainless steel cutter to cut rings of dough out; do not twist the cutter.

      Place the scones onto a baking tray lined with grease proof paper. Brush with a little milk and dust with flour.

      Place the scones into the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes or until golden and risen.

      The Chef's tip

      If you do not have sultanas use raisins instead they taste wiil be just as good.
