TITLE: Flambé away / フランベ


The smell of barbeques was thick in the air and we could hear sausages sizzling beside sticky glazed ribs. A hot pan of caramelised butter became engulfed in flames as rye whiskey was poured in, singeing the edges of ripe bananas and melting Demerara sugar. A large glass of Chianti delivered soft blackcurrant fruit with grape tannins that merged delightfully with applewood smoke and venison. Sweet tones of vanilla sponge cake sat with marmalade and maple syrup as the delicious spice of hot cross buns ventured forward. A thick texture persevered throughout, combining barbeque sauce with fruit syrup whilst the finish delivered a refreshing hue of buttermints with a hint of peppermint.
