We ate really well during our travels. Rhinoa’s aunt made delicious food each night we stayed there. We had Indian curry and veggies our first night, and cauliflower cheese our second made with fresh, local white cheddar. We had cheddar and cucumber sandwiches on homemade bread with homemade chutney for lunch and freshly baked chocolate shortbread cookies for dessert. We had traditional afternoon tea of scones, clotted cream and jam with English breakfast in a restaurant by the sea.
In Scotland, we dined at an upscale vegetarian restaurant that was absolutely amazing. I don’t even remember the names of the dishes but they creative combinations of ingredients and super tasty. We had a fancy afternoon tea at the hotel. Tiny little cakes, scones with clotted cream and jam, finger sandwiches and pots of Scottish breakfast with a lovely little view of the gothic storefronts.

Once we returned home, I was so inspired by all the yummy British treats, I took my turn at making cauliflower cheese using daiya, bringing an English breakfast of scones, cream, and jam with my English Breakfast tea. I even had a very good friend over for my version of fancy afternoon tea.
