The bee's knees

sold out

A fascinating combination of aromas ranging from sweet to salt and smoke kept us all very much engaged and interested; sea salt caramels, a salted chocolate tart using smoked sea salt and churros with salty peanut sugar and bitter chocolate.  It tastes exactly how it noses.  It was big in every sense; sweet, salty, smokysimply stunning and best described by the following remarks; ‘dog’s bollocks’ and ‘bee’s knees’!  Reluctantly we added a drop of water, however we still enjoyed that very unusual combination we experienced neat but now, admittedly, a little tamer but still tantalizing every nook and cranny of our tongue.
