Notes

Like a mountaineer's morale booster the flavours arrived wrapped in heavy oak and a thin layer of linseed oil. A strong smell of cognac and calvados rejuvenated frosted senses as we settled into red fruit jam and strawberry liquorice. Delicate alpine flowers rested over apple crumble and pears soaked in brandy whilst a wedge of marzipan arrived with marmalade on rye bread. Tangy orange skin danced on the tongue with nuances of first aid as tea tree oil mingled with nutmeg. Lapsang souchong tea brought soothing warmth with blackcurrants and tart cherries on a soft chamois leather blanket. Dark chocolate encased the rich oils of brazil nuts as wood returned on the dry sawdust finish.
