The delightful texture of hazelnut oil and toasted pine nuts gently moved into butter popcorn with a heavy sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg. Shavings of fresh coconut and new oak introduced pure temptation as butter pastry arrived with a sticky maple and pecan Danish. Floral notes captured violet liqueur with a cup of jasmine green tea announcing the palate laden with wasabi spice. Plenty of sweet treats then ensued as baklava arrived doused in runny honey and warm apple tart appeared with pear sorbet. Fudge and banana sweets followed through to the finish with cloves mingling with spiced rum and sweet cereals.
