A real briny aroma greeted the Panel, one comment was “just like dousing a fire with saltwater” while another enjoyed “pitted green olives with chili and black pepper”. On the palate, flavours of sweet smoked pears and sour plums soon followed by grill-smoked summer peas and seared sweet briny scallops. With water, we had a seafood platter with fresh oysters, ceviche and soused mackerel in sweet vinegar on the nose whilst to taste now smoked caramel doughnuts, pheasant terrine with a cranberry and onion confit and in the finish, carrot beef sushi with caper basil mustard.
