Aromas of puff pastry apple turnovers, plum frangipane tart and chilled orange slices in rum-caramel syrup lead us down the garden path as the taste neat had plenty of heat in the form of cayenne pepper, dried crushed chillies and Tandoori spiced Nan bread with coriander and mint puree. Let’s add some water –the nose now offered a little spice to the original sweetness in the form of cinnamon swirls, Chai spiced carrot cake and sticky ginger lemon drizzle cake. Much more approachable on the palate reminding us of a coconut- key lime pie boozy milkshake garnished with nutmeg and orange zest.
