We were busy in the kitchen making lemon confit using olive and canola oil with a pinch of salt as well as white chocolate coconut fudge and vanilla custard. Well rounded on the palate neat, a beautiful sweetness; vanilla cream, marshmallows and coconut candy while in the finish a ginger Jaffa cake trifle. With a drop of water we were transported to a meadow in summer picking berries and a gentle breeze carried aromas from nearby gorse bushes and the pine forest. The taste was like ginger turmeric lemon cream slices; so delicate, fluffy, lightly sweet and incredibly creamy, coupled with the tart and zingy lemon bottom layer it was a perfect accompaniment.
