Sunkist-Chef Danhi Recipe And Contest Giveaway! Plus Top 10 Facts About Citrus Fruits

Chef-educator Robert Danhi's free workshop, organised by Sunkist, happens this Sunday (10 March, 4-6pm) at ToTT. No need for registration - just come on by (first 80 guests get a goodie bag too)!

We are also giving away five sets of great prizes in a easy contest here below. Collect them at the event itself!

I'm certainly looking forward to meeting Robert himself - an amazing guy who is truly in love with Southeast Asian cuisine. See my previous post.

He will be showcasing some exclusive creations:
--  Lemon-Coriander Salsa with Seared Scallops
--  Sparkling California Lemonade
--  Sunkist Orange & Yogurt Parfait with Toasted Coconut

Here's one of the recipes. Sounds yummy already!

It's always a great idea to add some fruits to our dishes - you get fruity fragrance, natural layers of sweet and tart, plus vitamins, antioxidants and fibre!

Top 10 Facts about Citrus Fruits

  1. Grapefruit can help suppress appetite.
  2. Flavonoids in fruits like grapefruit may protect the heart by reducing inflammation in the arteries.
  3. Cara Caras (photo above) are called "The Power Orange" because they provide 150% of the vitamin C an average person needs each day. They also contain lots of vitamin A, folate, fiber, and lycopene.
  4. Cara Caras have pink flesh inside, and a rich, floral aroma with cranberry/cherry undertones and a vanilla flavour finish.
  5. As a special hybrid of navel oranges, Cara Caras are seedless and easy to peel. 
  6. One navel orange gives all the vitamin C an average person needs a day.
  7. At only 80 calories, oranges are nutritious and filling, thanks to their fibre and water content.
  8. Just one ounce (two tablespoons) of fresh lemon juice fulfils 20% of your daily vitamin C requirement.
  9. Adding fresh lemon juice to your tea helps increase absorption of antioxidants.
  10. All these fruits are fat-free, sodium-free and cholesterol free.
