“This is a real precious gem” with the scent of melon balls and honey, smoked apricot jam, serrano ham, Jaffa cakes and Grand Marnier-soaked tropical fruits on top of vanilla bean ice cream. The taste neat was sublime - honey, hazelnuts, marzipan, gingerbread, citrus, almonds and brioche all in perfect harmony. A drop of water added vanilla and coconut powder, sweet quince paste and millionaire’s shortbread. Meanwhile on the palate, delicate and elegant floral marshmallows infused with French violet liqueur and topped with crystallised violet petals came to mind as we were inspired by Roald Dahl’s Mr Willy Wonka “who can make marshmallows that taste of violets?”
