Lindsay’s Tea Party is so pleased to share one of our new most favorite places to order local British baked goods from, The London Bakery! Jo Paige, is the fabulous British Baker, behind the name (The London Bakery) and she brings a wealth of knowledge with her to East County, San Diego. Jo’s Mother, was a pastry Chef for many years in London, England, and raised Jo in the kitchen, with the fresh aroma of warm pastries daily!
The London Bakery offers the “best of the British” baked goods and savories and a wide array of seasonal specials. One of her fabulous finds is the array of the homemade (and hand sealed) mason jar jams! Flavors include: (but not limited to) Raspberry & Jalapeno, Pineapple & Habanero, Papaya & Lime, Strawberry & Chai Seed, Pina Colada, Strawberry, Balsamic, Black Pepper, Club Tropicana, and Blackberry & Cabernet, as well as traditional house Lemon Curd. You can visit The London Bakery on FB for seasonal specials.
The Lemon Curd is also used in the delightful and towering Luscious Lemon Curd Cake!
Next up are her famous Scones! My family adores scones (even my 3 children), we make scones weekly and sometimes even daily. We always make them fresh and now that we have found The London Bakery, I believe we are going to need to pick up some of hers on a regular basis. They are delicious. They are the traditional style, English scones, not too sweet, and has just the right amount of texture. They truly melt in your mouth. Best served with one of her famous jams or lemon curd, and seasonally, she will offer her Devonshire Cream to go with (which is just divine and freshly made in her kitchen).
Next up is homemade Shortbread! This shortbread might, quite possibly, be the best thing my mouth has ever tasted!!! I know she makes it in a variety of seasonal flavors and I recently sampled the plain recipe. It is so tender yet crisp and just right the amount of pastry sensation as it hits your tongue. I dunked mine in lemon curd, then in Devonshire cream, then in strawberry jam and, oops, it was gone!!! I had intended for my family members to also sample it, however, I couldn’t help myself. This is the perfect midday snack, lovely dessert tray for a party, or fabulous addition to your next afternoon tea party!
