A Taste of the Tea Room: Scone-Making with Linda Rivers | Farmview Market | 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
In this mid-afternoon workshop with Chef Linda Rivers, you will learn about the history of the delicious British treat known as a scone and learn proper techniques for making these scrumptious pastry treats built upon the simplest ingredients: flour, fat, and milk! Linda will demonstrate her scone-making process, step-by-step, for creating the lightly sweetened, biscuit-like cakes that make tea-time (or anytime!) so much lovelier. You will leave with Linda’s favorite scone recipe, a goodie-bag of her scones, and firsthand knowledge of how a British baker makes magic! It’s the perfect experience for an aspiring baker, a ladies’ day out (grab lunch in the cafe beforehand and then come to class!), or a little miniature get-away for the Anglophile in the family!
