  1. Although I have lived in the US for many years I was born in Ireland and grew up in England.
    The usual pattern followed for serving afternoon tea that I have always experienced in the United Kingdom is sandwiches first, then scones, then the cake course.
    I’m not sure why so often in the US the scones are served first.
    Does anyone have any idea how that came to be?
