Product Description


"Just about the most charming food book I’ve come across this year" (Samuel Muston Independent)

"Liam and Grace are my kind of people - East London, tea-drinking anthropomorphism lovers. The Little Book of Scones is a creative explosion and charming celebration of the humble scone ... so much so that you may never eat an ordinary scone again - be warned." (Angel Adoree, author of The Vintage Tea Party Book)

"Anyone with a penchant for all things vintage will love this book, which comes complete with quirky illustrations and – our favourite – a musical recommendation to listen to while you’re making each scone" (Sunday Business Post)

"A charming gift book" (The English Can Cook)

"Scone connoisseurs Liam D’Arcy and Grace Hall run a busy market stall in their spare time selling their scone creations and now they share some of their inventive recipes in this cute book. It contains all sorts of sweet and savoury scone recipes, from Pesto and Chorizo to Golden Syrup Roly Poly" (Choice)

Book Description

For fans of the Great British Bake Off and The Vintage Tea Party - move over cupcakes - scones are back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable book, skyscraper scones! 4 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had been looking forward to receiving this book in the post, mainly because I'm a proud Mum and my daughter drew the wonderful pictures! But within 15 minutes I had my mixing bowl out and the resulting 'Basic Sweet Scones' were fabulous (and my normal scones have always been a bit iffy). Maybe it's the custard powder or the 'chaffing' - but whatever the magic ingredient - it worked brilliantly. Scrummy. So which ones shall I make next? Becka recommends the Pesto and Chorizo or the Feta, garlic and spring onion!

5.0 out of 5 stars All'Scone mad in my kitchen 12 July 2013
I received my book earlier this week and decided to make the first I came to on randomly opening the book. Bring on the chorizo and pesto savoury scone - delicious! Now in the mood, I also baked the basic sweet scone recipe and feeling uber confident by now, put together my own recipe based on a couple of the others I had seen in the book. My kitchen is full to the brim of scones, which I will take to the family to sample tomorrow. This is a lovely little book, easy to read and loving the "for the radio" and story behind the book. Of course I might be a little biased - well done little cuz xx

5.0 out of 5 stars Amaze!! 12 July 2013
By EmmaCos
I do not bake and I do not cook however this book may be the first thing to encourage me to do so! The book is delightful! It's quirky illustrations provide a unique visual treat and it's radio song suggestions make it fun and original! Grace and Liam have done an incredible job and reading about them and how they got All Scone started is inspiring!
This is a must buy!!!

LOVING this book of delicious treats. Recipes are easy to follow and so creative. Illustrations are amazing. And the 'For the Radio' tracks are brilliant - unearthed some great old albums on these recommendations. Can't get enough of this book! Great job Liam and Grace! Who are these people?!

I tried the basic scone recipe and was not impressed. I am a highly experienced baker and know what I am doing so if the scones are not good I know it is the recipe.

I tried the recipe again but this time added 2 teaspoons of baking powder to the self raising flour and the results were better.
The first lot were dense, heavy and inedible. Although the chickens ate them.

I was seduced into buying book because of all the interesting variations, but the basic recipe is not as good as the one I have been using for years. The book is style of substance, I am afraid. I may just use some of the ideas but with my own basic scone recipe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 19 July 2014
I love the style and story in this book, especially the music suggested to listen to as you are making each recipe. I bake several times a week but never scones as there is already an expert in my family. I attempted my first scones, cherry an almond, from the book to take to a friend's and they were pretty impressive. I cannot wait to try all of the other unusual combinations included, and armed with this book feel as though I can finally match my sister in scone making. There are loads of useful hints at the beginning and space to write your own notes at the back. It would make a lovely present, so I will probably buy a few more copies.
