We huddled around burning logs as heather crackled in the heat and the earth scorched beneath the embers. Sweet smells came from sizzling bacon and honey-glazed ham whilst walnuts and macadamias toasted in a pan over the flames. Then through the smoke came a fruity note of black cherries with a spicy edge of rye bread with honey. A constant suggestion of steam engines heralded puffs of smoke combined with oily rags and old boots but sweetness prevailed with a maple syrup and pecan Danish.

A few drops of water delivered nutty notes as tawny port joined walnut bread and later praline. The bacon now had a more salty character that mixed with coal dust and burnt wood that remained onto the finish to be joined by delicious chocolate brownies.
