Dance of the bumblebee

sold out

The flavours tiptoed on the tongue in a delicate dance, twirling through rosewater, peach, mango, dried papaya and white chocolate. With little pirouettes it displayed Turkish delight, hazelnuts, Bakewell tarts and strawberry jam before revolving into marmalade, orange blossom honey, pears, raw chocolate and black pepper. It swiftly turned into a jig of sticky figs and skipped its way through olives, spiced red apple chutney, salted caramel, old leather, candied fennel seeds and dusty chalk. Velvety smooth and exceedingly complex movements, the finish was resplendent with green apples, lots of sweetness and huge, long lasting spice.
