Description

Straight away we were swept to a busy fishing harbour packed with fishing nets, lobster shells and tar-covered ropes. Puffs of smoke popped out of ship's funnels and carried the light oily smell of engine rooms. Amongst the salt and tar and creosote soaked wood came delicately floral hues of heather and lavender with soft blackberry fruit. The irresistible fat from smoked duck brought a rich and viscous texture to the palate that touched on aniseed and herbal cough syrup with the sweetness of crayfish tails. Cutting through the oils came a hint of menthol and Jaffa cakes that became reminiscent of old fashioned cocktails with a dash of cocktail bitters. Wonderfully creamy notes evolved on the finish as brandy butter melted over seaweed with smoked muscles in a cream sauce and layer of smoke from burnt porridge.
