Oranges tickle the senses with their delightfully refreshing scent. The rich buttery flavour of Siberian pine nuts provides comfort and evokes winter memories. Our aromatic sherbet, half gelato half sorbet, evokes warm and cold sensation at the same time. The slightly minty, peppery, balsamic taste with a woody aftertaste of rosemary completes the flavour palette with gentle authority.
Earthy, slightly fruity with a bit of tart flavour, walnuts are packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamin E and Melatonin. We combined them with dates, toffee-sweet like Mediterranean sunshine. To shadow the complex sweet and earthy-nutty flavours we chose buttermilk – a slightly tangy fermented milk drink, which is full of healthy probiotics and sets the perfect stage for walnut and date romance.
Rooibos is a plant grown in a small mountainous area of Cederberg, South Africa's Western Cape. Fresh rooibos leaves are green when first picked, but change their colour to brick-red and their flavour to woody - earthy during the fermentation process. Adding milk brings out the herb's deep warmth that is accentuated even more by adding the juice of the fresh ginger root. Cacao butter, infused with chocolate nibs, gives it a rich creamy base, dotted with the small crunchy bites adding a chocolate flavour.
Pears are one of the few fruits owning an extensive history, reaching back to about 1000 B.C. They used to be called “butter fruit” for its soft, butter-like texture. We combined it with the crumbly and soft Gorgonzola, one of the world's oldest blue-veined cheeses. Its nutty flavour is enhanced by adding a pinch of walnuts. Walnuts gracefully compliment the sweetly mellow peer and robust gorgonzola with some tangy and sharp notes.
Vincent van Goat
Goat cheeses have a unique, tart, earthy flavour that sets them apart from cow cheeses. This distinctive tang and aroma grows robust and bold as it ages. Meanwhile thyme has been known since ancient times for its magical, culinary, and medicinal virtues. Tradition held that an infusion of thyme taken as a tea on midsummer's eve would enable one to see the fairies dancing. To enhance this magical combination we added the tangy and earthy walnut.
Liquorice is native to Southern Europe and Asia and is referred to as ‘sweet root’, attributing to a component called glycyrrhizin present in its root which is much sweeter than sugar. In traditional Chinese medicine it was referred as “the peacemaker”. Meanwhile Romans believed that the sweet strawberry could cure melancholy, fever, bad breath, chronic fainting, and spleen and liver disorders. We mix it all with the tart rhubarb and there you have your new summer’s pick-me-up!
Nutty and pleasant in taste, poppy seeds are nutritious oilseeds and are mainly used in the culinary world for their crunchy texture and unique flavour. We think they are pretty amazing too and merged them with plums - one of the first fruits domesticated by humans. Plums, ranging from sweet to tart, are excellent source of vitamin C. To enrich both of the flavours we added mascarpone, the dense and somewhat sweet cream.
The sweet and fruity carrots can be traced back about 5,000 years through historical documents and paintings. The veggie is an excellent source of vitamin A, providing more than 200% of your daily requirement in just one carrot. Carrots are loaded with beta-carotene, a natural chemical that the body changes into vitamin A. Complimented with the pungent ginger and chocolate to create a comforting and soothingly familiar flavour.
Who would have thought one single raspberry can contain so much goodness? Raspberries contain more vitamin C than oranges, are super high in fibre, low in calories and supply you with a good dose of folic acid. They are sweet, they are juicy, they are a perfection.

Tamarind is sour with a hint of bitterness. With paired it with the pungent ginger, which through many centuries and throughout civilisations was considered to an aphrodisiac. It heats your insides, stimulates circulation while its intense scent wakens olfactory glands. To find the right balance between spicy, sour and sweet we added white chocolate, which brings together all the ingredients in an awakening yet soothing combination.
Burned milk. Each of us share different associations of moments, places, people or time of the day when we have encountered the incredibly comforting taste or scent of burned milk. Whether at midnight when you couldn’t lay in your bed at rest and had your loved one prepare you a glass of warm milk, or from childhood when you went to the kitchen to find your mother preparing a porridge with hot milk. On a more scientific level, burned food is called the Maillard reaction - a coveted cooking phenomenon. As food browns and caramelizes, amino acids and sugars are rearranged, producing complex, savory flavors. This chemical reaction gives food a savory, umami, and—when it really gets black—bitter flavor. Therefore, in defence of those who absolutely love tastes that are crustier or darker from being burned - burning food does enhance flavour.
Asparagus is considered as one of the first veggies that will show up in the spring garden and also a sign of an upcoming season of bounty. It is also a nutritious vegetable that is packed with great loads of fibers and antioxidants. Perhaps the earliest depiction of asparagus existed on an Egyptian frieze dating back to 3,000 BC. We paired it with lemon and Lapsang - a Chinese black tea native to the mountainous Wu Yi region, in the province of Fujian. Its dark twisted leaves make up this wonderful tea, but what sets it apart from all other teas is its amazing smoky flavour and fragrance.
This fermented, savoury and slightly salty wander of pickled watermelon and rhubarb will be an unexpected experience for your taste buds.

Smoke flavours come from molecules released during combustion and are often expressed in the mezcal as notes of chili pepper, chocolate, ash, wood and fire.
soy sauce caramel
There are many varieties available to satisfy a sweet tooth, but one that melts the hearts of many is rich, creamy caramel. We invited one more guest to attend the party - the soy sauce. Soy sauce is one of the world's oldest condiments and has been used in China for more than 2,500 years. It is made from fermenting a mixture of mashed soybeans, salt, and enzymes. In combination with caramel, its flavor enhancing properties, or umami, of the soy extract are recognized to help blend and balance taste.

Made using unpasteurised milk, the finished cheese has a hard texture and is a great source of daily vitamins, calcium and minerals.

We dressed it with wildflower honey – a powerful natural anti bacterial cure. We balance them carefully to create a snowy-white aromatic gelato that blooms slowly with gentle flavour.
The best of two worlds - sour cream combines the richness of the cream with a slight tanginess or fermentation. Rhubarb, a Siberian native is a double agent. Under its poisonous leaves it hides pretty pink stalks, that when cooked reveal the sweetness of candied strawberries with a freshness of an apple. We spiced the creamy and light gelato with red hibiscus flowers that add a little extra swoosh of colour and berry flavour.
Tipsy Oligarch is a combination of flavours for those who are willing to test their own limitations. In this experiment we combine the best of both worlds. Pork delivers hints of umami, saltiness from its curing and a little bit of brown sugar for the sweetness (I wasn’t sure but I remember you mentioned caramelisation). To top it all we added a pungent with a smoky character 16 years old whiskey from Isley.
Twilight Sword is a flavour that combines Western and Eastern culinary traditions. Milk provides creamines, comfort of familiar taste and helps to get acquainted with less common flavours of black sesame and miso caramel. Black sesame is one of the oldest oilseed crops known, domesticated well over 3000 years ago. It has rich and nutty flavour and has plenty of nutritional benefits.

The leathery and caramel-y treat has a sweet spot in history since the tree and its fruit have so many uses — from food to building materials — the date palm is known as the “tree of life” in the Middle East, and it’s the national symbol of Saudi Arabia and Israel. To add sharp and tangy tones we mixed it with hazelnut and sage - admired for centuries for its medicinal as well as culinary uses. All parts of sage plant have a strong scent and a warm, bitter, somewhat astringent taste, due to the volatile oil contained in the tissues. Its warm and musky essence will remain as the last touch to our Dorian Grey.
