Notes

We imagined that we had just finished the spring cleaning – having vacuumed and shampooed the carpets, polished the furniture, and cleaned the windows and the linoleum floors. On the palate there was plenty of heat, chilli and black pepper before caramel slices and vanilla layer cake with lemon curd appeared. Following reduction, we discovered fresh pickled manzano peppers with onion as well as roasted strawberries with brown sugar and coriander. To taste, it was still prickly to start with as it reminded us of a chartreuse martini of dry vermouth, gin and chartreuse. The spicy finish had the surprising sweetness of maple syrup, honey, caramel and vanilla mint.
