Afternoon tea encompasses the only things that are right with British cuisine: hot tea and scones. Forget bangers, faggots with gravy or spotted dick (were middle-schoolers allowed to name English food?); give us a creamy, flaky scone with preserves. Experience the range of edible British food at afternoon tea with Darren McGrady, who will speak about his time as chef to the royal family, at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club, 7003 Beacon Hill Road in McKinney, 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday. Cost is $50. RSVP by calling 972-562-6996 ext. 119.
