On the nose neat we had a Thai green chicken curry with coconut milk, lime leaves, lemongrass, basil, garlic and pea aubergines on asunny warm beach. The taste was somewhat different. We had a good old breakfast ‘fry-up’ consisting of eggs, bacon, sausages, baked beans as well as grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, plenty of brown sauce and all washed down with the perfect cuppa. The aroma after dilution was ‘bizarre’ with loads of character; engine oil, lavender sweets, deep-fried Mars bars and the flavour was that of tempura courgette flowers with cream cheese, basil and honey.
