The inside view of life in the Drinks Kitchen
We discovered and fell in love with our cinchona extract a few years ago when we were working on new flavours for tonic water. Cinchona, pronounced sing-koh-nuh, is a species of plants, mainly trees, native to the Andes of South America; the bark of some contains quinine.
Cooking has been a passion of mine since secondary school when I took home economics for one of my options and during those early teenage years, I had a few favourites recipes; cheese souffle, lemon meringue pie & donuts. Note the odd one out there? Where did cheese souffle come from? Even at 13, I had highfalutin ideas!
