Chef tips:

  • Scones are great for lunch boxes, you can split them and fill them with a sandwich filling or serve alongside low protein soups and curries as a bread alternative
  • Scones need to be eaten the same day as they don’t keep very well, but you can split them and toast them for breakfast or a quick snack
