Clotted cream is a bit more like butter in texture.

This is where the word "dollop" is so appropriate :)

Cornwall - St. Ives and Padstow

As I said people do what they like - but I do know people from both places who jokingly actively debate it sometimes. It's tribal, same as one's football club.

In Devon they do or supposedly do. Cornwall and Devon argue about this a lot. The rest of the country do as they please..as I suspect do most of the inhabitants of those areas (in secret of course).
Oddly I put cream on first because I like it more than jam and also because cheesecake seems to do the same and who can argue with cheesecake.

My lightbulb moment

What made me laugh is at the bottom of the (also good) review of The Manor by Fay Maschler in the ES here:http://www.standard.co.uk/goingout/re...
Is the link to another newer review of Portland - and check out the decor!

The bad news is that a traditional Cornish pasty is made with beef. The good news is that there are enough varieties now for you to still enjoy a pasty down in its natural home.
Remember in Cornwall that the order of things is scone, then jam and then cream. Never cream first as in Devon.
Have fun!

Visiting London from Philadelphia for first time in 20 years. So many places, only 7 dinners. Help!

I think you just stated the reason ;)

[London] Chowmeet at Crystal China, Tower Bridge Road

I'm not going to argue with that one.
Although you might not be jealous of our daily commute. ;)

I love a challenge like this ;)

[London] Lunch at Gymkhana, Mayfair

I'm wary of jackfruit now. I used it to make a SE Asian curry. It was delicious but gave me awful stomach ache :(

Nice! I've passed that place so many time. Perhaps I should pay a visit one day.

I wish I could find the holiday flavours of Celestial Seasoning tea without having to order them from Ebay for millions of pounds.

green noodles?

I've seen it quoted as a result of the low temperature. What is causing the colour?

Oxidation of the egg yolk right. Think this is common. Opinion seems to cary on whether people consider the eggs bad or harmless after this amount of time also.

Selective breeding isn't especially similar because whatever trait you are selecting for would still originally be "comice pear" (unless the genetic modification is also using selected DNA from the same variety) but crossbreeding can certainly be similar.

I looked at product lists indicating GMO/non-GMO by product code. So the info isn't that hard to find ;)

I couldn't find stuff that suggested comice pears had been genetically modified. Have you got links?

Are crispy eggs a culinary no no?

Even Delia Smith describes a slightly crispy egg so I think you are fine.
