Tales from the Bush

It’s tea-time in Africa. The dust of the day settles along with the heat, and the kettle has just boiled. Fresh baked aromas waft from the kitchen, adding to the dreamy nature of day moving to dusk. Light and atmosphere golden, Chef Enoch arrives with the final ingredient to a perfect afternoon: scones.

But since you cannot presently come to our scones, our scones shall come to you! 

Feel free to unleash your inner chef with the below recipe from Chef Enoch, all the way from Nantwich Lodge, Zimbabwe. Living up to his mouth-watering cooking, his baking skills do not disappoint, and these scrumptious safari scones will transport you to a warm and dreamy safari afternoon.
