It’s not long now until “The BIG Devonshire Cream Tea”!
On the 19th, 20th and 21st May we will be at The Devon County Show, where you’ll be able to enjoy truly authentic Devonshire Cream Teas. What’s more, if you’re visiting on Thursday 19th, make sure you’re there early as at 10.00am we’ll be attempting to break the World Record for the biggest Devonshire Cream Tea.
Richard Hunt (Executive Head Chef at The Grand Hotel, Torquay) is building an 8 foot across, home baked scone, covered with lashings of Langage Farm Devonshire Clotted Cream (cream on first of course!), topped off with Richard’s own strawberry jam! A GIANT Devonshire cream tea! Sounds like a Devonshire dream cream tea to us!
This world beating creation will take approx 90 minutes to complete. It will be fascinating to watch and will go on sale from 11.30am, giving you the chance to scoff a little piece of Devonshire history!
Don’t miss us! Our purpose built marquee is in ‘Avenue A’ throughout the 3 day show and we’d love to see you. As well as hosting the World Record attempt, we’ll be serving up fresh baked scones, produced by Richard Hunt and his bakery team, covered in delicious Langage Farm Devonshire Clotted Cream, topped off with amazing, hand poured, fruity strawberry jam and all washed down with a well deserved cup of the fabulous ‘Devonshire Tea’, a unique blend of tea created by a Devonshire family company.
Perhaps the best thing of all is that we’re putting together fabulous Devonshire Cream Tea Hampers in a jute bag, to take home & share with family & friends who aren’t able to come along… OR, you might just want to be greedy & have more for yourselves when you get home after the show!
Langage Farm’s General Manager, Paul Winterton is counting down to the big day, “This is a wonderful opportunity for the county of Devon to show the entire world that the only unique cream tea is a Devon one! We invite people from all over to come and try this unique delicacy”.
If you haven’t already signed up to our petition for Protected Designation of Origin to protect the great Devonshire Cream Tea, you’ll be able to do that at the show too. Alternatively, you can join the campaign and sign up right here on our website.
If you think this all sounds like the perfect excuse (as if you really needed one!) for elevenses, twelveses and more(!) we’ll see you at the Devon County Show!
