English Scones

English Scones

This post was meant for two weeks ago. But it is here now.
Scones have been in my life ever since I can remember. They were there at both my grandparents’ houses when we visited. Always warm. Welcoming. The perfect tea time treat.
When they made them at my mom’s house I distinctly remember standing impatiently next to the oven wanting for them to be ready. Needless to say that I almost always burnt my mouth because I couldn’t wait for them to slightly cool off. From the oven to my mouth no layovers.

Ever since I can remember I’ve loved baking. Always. Since approximately the age of 11 years old I have been in charge of birthday cakes at home. My repertoire was limited yes, but very very good.
At the time I stuck to Argentinean classics: lemon meringue tart, Rogel - our version of millefuilles: 10 or 12 layers of thin crunchy crust filled with dulce de leche and covered in Italian meringue, strawberry tart, the “Bombe” – fudgy brownie, dulce de leche, Chantilly and Italian meringue, and finally the “Havannet”.

It's a beautiful fall day in Paris today. The blue sky contrasts with those unique autumn colours. Just perfect. Me, I'm sitting at my neighborhood boulangerie, having a delicious coffee, writing this post and trying to come up with a menu to serve at the dinner parties I'll be hosting next week.
It’s been crazy lately with all the dinners and trying to keep up with blog. I am quite new at this, and am still getting the hang of things. But I’m getting there, and most importantly I’m enjoying the process.
When I first started hosting dinners at my apartment I maintained the menu for a month or so because it was easier to be organized and get things done. As time went by, I got a little bolder. I now change part of the menu every week.
