Tasting Notes
Through the darkness of night you look up to the sky. She opens her leather journal and you smell the peppered venison with boysenberry sauce cooking away on the campfire. The rich aromas of nutmeg, star anise, juniper berries and dried oregano fill the evening air. She traces the stars with her finger and you observe her carefully, wondering what future she will foretell in the stars.
