Blood Orange Marmalade

Blood Orange Marmalade

Funny thing: the first time I saw a blood orange was 2 years ago when I was interning at a restaurant in Paris. I had to press around 100 citruses amongst which I found some blood oranges. I must confess that the I first though that I had blown one of my first assignments... But I hadn’t. Lucky me. So that was the beginning of my romance with this delicious citrus.
I went to the market last week and saw blood oranges. Oh oh oh. I love blood oranges, their color for one thing is absolutely beautiful. And the taste. They are not with us for long so I knew I had to make the most of them.

The Sunday after New Year’s we went to brunch with some friends. It was pouring rain and freezing cold. We had decided to meet outside of a restaurant we like, but off course there was a huge line. Estimated waiting time: 1 hour. Under the rain off course. So in an act of pure wisdom we decided against it.
We didn’t go far... Right next door there was a restaurant and it had availability. A very easy decision. So in we went. It was a buffet kind of brunch, it was ok. And we were starving so I guess you could say the perfect combination. What was out of this world, and what kept me up at night was one of the desserts they were offering that day. And yes you guessed right: white chocolate mousse.

It is officially the New Year. 2016. Welcome. Get ready. It’s going to be a great year. I can feel it. So much so that I am smiling as I write these lines. I just know.
I spent the last part of last year in Buenos Aires visiting my family and friends for the holidays. I enjoyed every tiny bit of the time I got to spend there. Being summer over there and all it was perfect. Plus I got to cook (a little not a lot I must confess!!!) for the people I love.
