First we noticed the bright golden autumn reddish/brown leaf colour before the engrossing scent of an Andalusian gazpacho followed by Moroccan beef stew with figs, almonds, dried fruits, olives and plenty of red wine made us all lick our lips to try it. Big, chewy and meaty like a pot-roasted beef with prunes and balsamic vinegar served with basil and pine nuts garnished gnocchi. Water added that ‘Christmassy feel’ of mince pies with orange and almond pastry as well as chocolate covered raisins, whilst the taste was that of rich coffee and date walnut cake and in the finish, orange & honey glazed dry roasted macadamia nuts.
