Savoury scones, brie and rhubarb chutneyWhether sweet or savoury, there is nothing quite like fresh scones straight from the oven. Serve these savoury scones with piping hot soup or thick slabs of brie and rhubarb chutney. We love Diane MacCleod’s rhubarb chutney, which featured in Issue 2 of Sweet Living (see recipe below).
