Coffee and brandy are the ideal end to any lavish civilised occasion, and it gave me a chance to showcase both. The vanillin, caramelised sugars and grape worked well with the floral and fresh flavours of Mr Black. Nuts are also end of meal, and local macadamia is ideal. Earthy balance from Aussie made agave and aquafarba, clove and ginger for a spice finish. Toasted sesame for nutty aroma and crunchy texture, spray of PX for the end of dinner rich sweet grape finishes the evening with a curtsy
