Somehow, we felt like we’d been tango’d – orange liqueur, orange wine, orange rind diffuser and orange jellybeans before notes of butterscotch and banana bread appeared. Spicier to taste than we all expected. More of a slap then a kiss, but then also a lovely sweetness like jalebi, crisp orange squiggles soaked in sugar syrup and spiked with cardamom and saffron. With water, a chutney or jam made from Cape gooseberries appeared, while to taste there was the freshness and juiciness of a mango and passion fruit salad with lime sorbet and pomegranate seeds.
