Grapefruit and sunshine

A dull chilly day in April was brightened up thanks to a cookery master class with Lisa Faulkner run by Florida Grapefruit.


The day started with a grapefruit master class. My years as a GCSE Food Tech student came flooding back to me as we were taught the correct way to segment a grapefruit. This was also an opportunity for us to taste a Florida Grapefruit. Not being a huge fan of grapefruit, I tentatively tasted a segment. But Florida grapefruits are much sweeter than other grapefruits, so I was pleasantly surprised and managed to eat the whole thing!

After our short master class, Lisa demonstrated how to cook a dish using salmon and Florida Grapefruit. The smell of the vinaigrette mixed with the salmon, cucumber and Florida Grapefruit was amazing, so I happily grabbed for a fork when Lisa welcomed us to try it.


A competition was held to find a new grapefruit recipe before the master class today. The lucky winner demonstrated her Florida grapefruit, honey and ginger cheesecake before we sat down to a delicious three course lunch.

All the courses contained grapefruit and I can safely say that they were all delicious. My personal favourite was the salmon dish Lisa demonstrated for us which we had for our starter.


I left the master class, stepping back onto the dull and now rainy streets of London. But after a morning of eating Florida Grapefruit at least I had some sunshine in my stomach.
