funny scottish books


Author Deedee Cuddihy had no idea people in the UK were so passionate about scones until she began research for "I Scones". Having been born and raised in a sconeless country (the USA), she was bowled over by the emotional connection the people she interviewed had with these humble lumps of baked dough.

"I Scones" is a veritable scone-ucopia of hundreds of hilarious and touching bite-size sconecdotes, top tier sconetent from the internet and print media as well as fascinating scone facts and scone jokes.

Read about: sacred scones in a Hare Krishna temple; whether scones are truly the way to a man's (or woman's) heart; fruit scone refuseniks and the great jam or cream first debate.

In fact, I love scones but mine tend to turn out flat and hard rather than deep and pillowy! I suffer from scone envy in respect of those who can make decent scones.

Baroness Young of Old Scone
