The English are famous for their afternoon tea with traditional scones.

“I’ll put the kettle on” are usually the first words you’ll hear when visiting a friend or relative in Britain. Tea is more than a drink in the British Isles; it’s a traditional way of socializing, a comfortable setting with friends, a soothing amity during grief or bad news. It has become a way of life and can be quite an art depending on your social status.

Unlike other ubiquitous Italian products like pizza and tomato sauce, which have a fairly recent history, pasta may have a much older pedigree, going back hundreds -if not thousands- of years.
