Call me excessive…but I had this again for my evening tea! I’m just crazy for it! I do think it’s a homage to Marco Polo – it’s different – more raspberry/currant rather than strawberry, more baked custard rather than cream, and not floral, so I think there is a place for both in my cupboard, but I do think dear Marco was the inspiration for it.
My husband pronounced it “girly.”(he’s not a big fan of Marco Polo either!) Hmph!
