Pagan feasting round the fire

sold out

Fresh lily of the valley and narcissi wreaths on flaxen haired maidens carrying dripping tallow candles. The dark forest beyond yielded sweet crab apple and pear. They feasted on liebchen and kaffebröd (pastries with cardamom and fennel seed) with slabs of French salted butter. To taste hints of the forest floor tangled with pecan, sweet pipe tobacco and creosote. Grilled Portobello mushrooms with ham on toast, and then minty chocolate. A rain shower brought out butter toffee, corn cakes wrapped in an oily rag. More nuttiness emerged with roasted brazils, walnuts and chestnuts, and a long smoking finish. Spellbinding.
