Delicate and sweet bonfire smoke framed a scene of tranquillity as toasted pine nuts, hazelnuts and chocolate covered marshmallows bobbed in rock pools that reflected the warm glow of a setting sun as it illuminated seagulls wings high above. On a seaweed shrouded rocky outcrop sat a mermaid carefully wrapping antiseptic gauze around an inflamed flipper, surrounded by mussels, oysters and a large box of salted dark chocolates. A few drops of water delivered sweet smoke from a blazing sugar plantation that wisped over freshly baked bread and buttered toast as the mermaids medicine combined cloves and camphor with oily fish. Subtle characters fused elderflower and applewood smoke on the sublime finish before ending with creamy notes of smoked barley and burnt milk.
