FRESH COCONUT & SWEET BERRIES
A wild and treacherous storm had blown our ship off course and we were lost sailing on open ocean for days. Becalmed, our rations were running low and the crew were beginning to look at each other with ravenous glee. Days trailed by with all but the slightest of winds to guide our way until we saw land in the distance. Our luck had turned. It was paradise.
The little island was covered in trees bountiful with coconuts. We developed a recipe that harvested their delicious, refreshing flavour as a delicacy, safe in the knowledge that one day others would enjoy such a taste in the same way we did.
