No problem! I love traveling and sampling different countries' food so I'm all up for hearing about some local grub!!
I think that's what is so nice about food, it's a truly global thing. Something that starts in one country travels all round and get changed or adapted and become part of the local life. It's a truly global enterprise!!
As for clotted cream, it's essentially really thick cream.
Apparently made by:
You heat up upasterised cow milk using steam or something similar like a water bath, then let it cool. The creamy bit that rises to the top is clotted cream.
I must confess to not knowing how it was made, and having to have a quick check of wikipedia - I learnt something new today
