We were transported to the beach where we started a fire with driftwood and on the grill we put a layer of seaweed mixed with heather and cooked sweet chilli prawns and Teriyaki monkfish skewers. On the palate a truly sweet smoky sensation to start, then dark fruits, blackberry jam with lime juice and smoked plum lemonade (using grilled lemons), added a zing to our barbeque. Drop of water and more sweetness appeared on the nose; slightly burnt doughnuts, hot cross buns and toffee apples. The taste also provided more sweetness to balance the still noticeable smoke which reminded us of charred wood.
