Bonjour Baking

Today I started a new post and hay presto the images loaded without a problem!
The day had to come where I would want to share my baking with you. I am no domestic godess, in fact I am the person who buys the tea towel that says "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house" but over the years I have perfected a few receipies. Scones are one of  them, I follow the Delia Smith recipe as it is fool proof. 
I was having visitors and decided to treat them to some home baking 
 But I don't do things by half and baked a few batches
      But then I was having a Bus load of visitors 
                          They were French farmers on a tour to see how we farm in Ireland. 
They were a lovely group even if we had difficulty communicating. 
My husband gave them a clipping demonstration.

The scones went down a treat and they even asked for the recipe. Some of the ladies were interested in art so I gave them an impromptu tour of my studio, but as most of my work is currently on exhibition in Galway I had very little to show them. I gave them my Blog details, so if any of you are reading this "Merci" for the lovely champagne you left us.

Here are some more pictures of the group.

We even organised for it to rain so they could really experience what it is like to farm way out west!


  1. French farmers and scones. Ireland farmers and croissants! I love to eat them!

  2. Who says life in Ardour is not exciting. I'll be waiting a while for a busload of French men!!

  3. Very impressed by your ability to feed the masses!
