When it comes to British food, few things carry the contentions of the great scone debate: should the cream or the jam be spread first? 🥛
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cream teas, and arguments surrounding the order of spreading the scone’s traditional toppings, have been around in the UK since the 11th century and show no signs of ceasing! 🇬🇧 While those in Devon typically spread the clotted cream first followed by jam, the Cornish tradition is to spread jam first followed by cream.
That’s why, as part of #AfternoonTeaWeek this week, we want to know...are you Team Cream or Team Jam first? 🤔 Comment below your pick! 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh, and according to a former chef who worked for the royal family, the Queen reportedly prefers jam first…but don’t let that sway you!

A restaurant and museum all in one?! Yes please! ‍️
In the historic city of Bath, South West England, Sally Lunn’s (@sallylunnsbath) is much more than a world-famous tea and eating house. It’s also a micro-museum in the cellars of the city’s oldest house, showing the birthplace of the original ‘Bath bun’ - a South Western speciality bread made using yeast dough, cream and eggs 
Visit Sally Lunn’s Eating House and enjoy a variety of authentic, locally-sourced dishes before heading to their living ‘Kitchen Museum’. There, you can see the legendary baker’s original kitchen and bakery dating from 1622, complete with an oven dating back to c.1100 - yep, that’s almost a thousand years old!  And if that’s not enough? Buy a Sally Lunn bun - beautifully presented in boxes - to take home with you as a delicious reminder of your visit to this amazing city, full of foodie heritage!
In the photo, food at the Eating House: toasted Sally Lunn buns with cured salt beef, honey mustard sauce and cornichons, & butter and marmalade

This British vodka is made from...milk!? 🤔
Exceptionally smooth with a uniquely delicate and creamy taste, Black Cow Vodka (@BlackCowVodka) is the invention of West Dorset dairy farmer Jason Barber who claims it to be the world’s first milk vodka, made from nothing but pure whole milk  Jason always wanted to diversify the produce from his 250 strong dairy herd, and had once learned about a nomadic Siberian tribe who, for centuries, have been distilling Araka - a vodka made, in part, from fermented mare’s milk. This obscure vodka got Jason thinking he could do something similar, this time using just milk from his own herd here in South West England 🇬🇧
So how on earth does Jason make vodka from milk?! Well, first he separates the milk. The curd goes on to produce his trophy-winning cheddar, and the whey gets fermented into a special milk beer, which is then distilled and triple-filtered into this smooth, clean tasting vodka. Cool huh? 🥛️

Dine in a restored medieval chapel! 🇬🇧️
At The Chapel (@at_the_chapel) is a grade II listed hotel, restaurant and bakery set within a gorgeous 17th-century former chapel in the Somerset town of Bruton, South West England. As soon as you walk through the chapel’s heavy wooden doors, you’ll be in awe of its high ceilings, enormous windows and suspended bauble lighting 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The food offer at this all-day restaurant and bar is excellent, with most of it locally reared and sourced - e.g. fish from Lyme Bay and salad leaves from @Charles_Dowding’s biodynamic farm. Bread is also made on-site in their bakery, featuring a gigantic wood-fired oven made from revived cellar bricks  Be sure to stop by this place in the morning, when the smell of freshly baked bread wafts into the street and will tempt your tastebuds

Originating from Somerset, South West England, Cheddar Cheese is one of the most consumed cheeses in the world! 🧀🇬🇧
The famous cheese takes its name from the Gorge, or rather, the caves in the market town of Cheddar, whose constant temperature and humidity provided a perfect environment for storing and maturing the cheeses  The cheese is said to have been made in Cheddar Gorge since at least the 16th century, though many would claim longer...There are references dating back to the 12th century when it was reported that King Henry II was ‘very fond’ of the cheese and declared it to be the ‘best in Britain’ 
Do you agree with King Henry II? Is Cheddar your favourite UK cheese? 🤔

Based in Cornwall, South West England, Clarence Court (@clarence_court) are renowned for their high quality free-range eggs 🥚 You’ve probably already spotted them  in the supermarket thanks to their bright, pastel-coloured boxes... 
Packaging aside, what sets Clarence Court apart is that their heritage pedigree hens are never rushed; they lay at their own natural, slow speed in high-welfare conditions and lay far fewer eggs per year than average free-range birds  The result? Exquisite, colourful, strong-shelled eggs with the deepest golden yolks and a distinctive flavour 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From Burford Browns and Old Cotswolds, to Ostrich, Turkey and Quail, this family-run business offers the widest range of eggs sold in Britain 
What’s your favourite type of egg?

Happy #InternationalBeerDay! 
Today, we’re joining thousands of pubs, breweries and bartenders around the world to celebrate the art, craft and greatness of beer! And what better time to share some of the un-beer-lievable breweries from the South West of England? 🇬🇧 Check out our round-up below! 
1️⃣ @SkinnersBrewery - Founded by Steve and Sarah Skinner in Truro, Cornwall, Skinners produce an amazing range of cask ales and bottled beers, the names of which often come from Cornish folklore 
2️⃣ @ElectricBearBrewing Co - Based in Bath, this microbrewery makes innovative and great tasting beers in all styles, from easy-drinking ales to highly-hopped beers. Don’t miss their delicious Coffee Stout ft. @cliftoncoffee...yum! ️
3️⃣ Arbor Ales - Bristol-based Arbor is a family run microbrewery that started out back in 2007 on just a 2.5 barrel kit in the back of a pub. Now, fully established, they brew a fantastic range of different beers...including ‘Citra’ - their gluten free pale ale that’s as refreshing as it is full of flavour! 
4️⃣ @SharpsBrewery - Sharp’s Brewery was founded in 1994 in Rock, Cornwall, when enterprising brewer Bill Sharp set out on a mission to make exception quality beer on the North Cornish coast. That he most certainly did, because today Sharp’s produce some of the UK’s best loved beers...including Doom Bar and Cornish Pilsner (pictured)

Not only does this traditional Cornish pie have amazing visual impact, it has a fantastic story behind it too! 🇬🇧🥧
Stargazy Pie is said to have been created in Mousehole (pronounced mow-zul), Cornwall, in honour of a brave fisherman called Tom Bawcock  Legend has it that Tom sailed out into a treacherously stormy sea when the village was facing starvation. Miraculously, he returned safely with an entire catch involving seven different types of fish, which he then made into a pie and shared among the townsfolk, saving them from famine - hurrah! To this day, Tom’s heroic deeds are celebrated every 23rd December in the Cornish town 🤗
The pie itself is traditionally made with potatoes, egg, milk and fish (usually herring, sardines or mackerel) and covered in a pastry crust before being baked and served  Although there are many different variations of the pie, its unique feature is that the fish heads (and sometimes tails!) poke through the pastry lid, as though they are gazing skyward

Have you ever tried a ‘stotty’? 🇬🇧 It may look like a plain, flat bread...but to many people in the North East of England, the stotty is an important symbol of the region’s rich foodie culture!
Made with white bread dough, stotties are baked first with an intense burst of heat but then left to cook slowly while the oven begins to cool down. The result? A warm, crusty bread with a delightfully chewy and uniquely stodgy centre  Trust us, as soon as you try a stotty slathered in salted butter, you’ll wonder how you ever managed to live without this delectably moreish slow-baked bread 
Pictured: A traditional North Eastern stotty sandwich complete with ham, pease pudding and plenty of cheese, courtesy of food writer and blogger Karen Burns-Booth aka: Lavender and Lovage...Be sure to search for and try out her recipe!
