A visually stunning collection of 75 inventive, foolproof recipes that highlight the sunny ingredient of citrus, from the ubiquitous lemon, lime, and orange to the more obscure kumquat and yuzu. A love for all things citrus is chronicled in this elegant collection of recipes that feature every common and exotic type of citrus--from Pixies and Eureka lemons to Valencia oranges and kumquats. Accessible yet sophisticated dishes including Grapefruit and Gin Marmalade, Tangerine Sticky Ribs, and Burnt Sugar Lemon Tart highlight the versatility of their juicy ingredients- zest the skin to make salt, peel the skin and candy it, cut up the flesh and add it to salads or bake it with roast duck. Photographer Victoria Pearson and food stylist and author Valerie Aikman-Smith capture the beauty of citrus at the market, on the plate, and in the colorful citrus groves surrounding Victoria's house. Lushly illustrated, Citrus will entice readers into their kitchens to fully savor winter's bounty.
