Scones at the Gryphon d'Or tea room in NDG
So we decided to drop in on one of Montreal's best tea rooms for a traditional British tea.
The Gryphon d'Or opened 15 years ago in NDG.
Cucumber sandwiches, sweets like Sticky Toffee Pudding, and blended teas have won it a place on the 'Best Tea List'. And it's scones win raves.
Sonali Karnick went out to meet owner Peggy Regan at Le Gryphon d'Or for a lesson in scone making.
But first Peggy showed her around the tea room on Monkland Avenue.
Have a listen - and then try her recipe below:
2 cups of All Purpose Flour
2 tablespoons of double-acting baking powder
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of good quality margarine
1 egg - beaten and add milk to bring up to 3/4s of a cup
Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 13-15 minutes.
