If I were to say to you the words ‘cheese scone’ you might think to yourself ‘Ah yes, I can imagine the sort of thing she means: a scone with cheese in it.’
You’d be quite right, but the scone featured in this post is not just any old scone with cheese in it. The cheese it featured was the locally produced ‘Anster’ variety, which was incorporated alongside other interesting ingredients, such as mustard seeds.
I was fortunate enough to consume this delectable item on the 30th of January 2013 at the Buttercup Cafe in Fife, part of the St Andrew’s Farmhouse Cheese Company.
I remember the occasion well. It was a cold sunny winter’s day and I opted for a bowl of deliciously chunky tomato and vegetable soup, served with a cheese scone. The scone looked tempting and my hopes were high.
When I sank my teeth into its flavoursome fluffiness I was almost overwhelmed by the completeness of the experience. Everything about it exceeded my expectations. I really don’t know when I’ve had a better cheese scone.
