The perfumed nose encapsulated a sweet fragrance that mingled with dried herbs and light nut oils while a strong maritime influence washed up dried seaweed, seashells on sandcastles and the sea breeze against crumbling chalk cliffs. Amid a wave of spice on the palate came bursts of tropical fruit as pineapples in a fruit salad merged with bananas and vanilla cream served at the end of a barnacle-covered pier. With water came a combination of brazil nuts, walnuts and roasted chestnuts dipped in salt while dried pineapples mixed with rum and raisin fudge. Hints of meringue and apricot jam joined creamy oysters and fishing nets before we finished with black olives, cloves and lime skin.
