As a food critic and son of Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, Tom Parker Bowles writes in his prefix in the Fortnum & Mason Cook Book – ‘it’s scone, like gone…not scone, like stone.’
But really, how you pronounce the word is largely irrelevant. Fortnum’s simply refer to them as the finest little baked creations in the world – and now they’re made fresh, three times a day, for home consumption at Fortnum & Mason Hong Kong.
Made thrice daily – 12pm, 2pm and 4pm – these afternoon treats are pre-packaged in Eau de Nil green and white takeaway boxes in sets of two and four.
Don’t forget to pick your favourite Fortnum’s tea or preserve to pair with this afternoon treat.
Available in plain and raisin, you have to be quick since once they are gone (as in scone!), they’re gone. Get there early to avoid disappointment.
