Jam or clotted cream? Which will you put on first at DorsetFest 17

By DorsetFest, May 5 2017 04:00AM


This is a debate that's even floored Prime Ministers. In April 2015 The Telegraph* reported on how David Cameron stumbled into one of food's fiercest controversies on a trip to a North Devon tea room where he pronounced that the correct way to eat a scone is to put the jam on first, then the cream. This is a point of honour between the people of Devon and Cornwall. In Cornwall it's jam then cream, but in Devon it's cream then jam.


This controversy rages on with celebrity supporters and influential organisations wading in where the brave fear to tread. For example, etiquette gurus Debrett's** say you should spread your jam before dolloping cream on top and a poll from afternoontea.co.uk claims that 60% support this view***


So are you one of the majority or one of the right...we mean minority? Either way, we love our cream teas and the ever popular tea tent will be serving delicious homemade cream teas throughout the day.

If you want to avoid the controversy altogether then don't worry. There will also be a great selection of homemade cakes to enjoy along with your cup of Dorset Tea.
