Baking in the afternoon: cheese scones

ree with Felicity Cloak in The Guardian – I love scones. I also happen to live in a cheese scone obsessed city (see this article from 2019 here). People at work discuss where they get their favourite cheese scone, and every year Pravda Café’s World Famous (in Wellington) Cheese Scone Class sells out on Wellington on a Plate (I was lucky to go in 2019). One of my favourite cafes, Floriditas, even has a recipe for their cheese and rocket scones on their website. The cheese scone is part of this city’s identity!

But then I stop and reconsider the world outside my window – everything is green, the bulbs are coming up, the clouds are clearing a bit (it did rain later), the kākā are calling raucously and there is a shepherd’s pie ready to go into the oven for dinner. Maybe things are not so bad after all.
