Small Batch Mini Flatbreads/ Prata

Sorry for the absence guys! Life has been getting in the way again. Lab work and student training along with Japanese food parties have left me distracted.

And the pronunciation of scone can vary based on where in the UK you live!   Language is a complicated thing, isn’t it? I don’t claim that English is the most complex language, but… Continue reading Sour Cream, Chive and Chicken Scones (or Biscuits!)
