January 2009 EatSavvy: Commercial Shoot

Another delicious EatSavvy shoot, with a bit of a (very pleasant!) surprise for me!

I have always wanted to like grapefruit, as I have always heard/read how nutritious it is for you. But I have always found it to be too bitter, and with an over powering taste (especially in a fruit salad). So I was very pleasantly surprised to find how much I enjoyed it in this month’s Red Grapefruit and Avocado Salad, I even went out grocery shopping the next day so I could prepare it at home for myself!


It turns out that the part I don’t like is the pith (membrane) part of the grapefruit. That is the part that is especially bitter/sour. The red grapefuit flesh itself is not bitter at all! So the trick is to cut away the flesh of the grapefruit from the bitter/sour pith, as shown in the following two images:



At the end of the shoot we all enjoyed the Dinner Party main course, Roasted Tomato and Sausage Linguini, it was delicious!

You may remember this cute little guy from my first EatSavvy shoot way back in July, he sure has grown!


What a cutie! And such a good eater too!

As always I’m looking forward to the yummy food at next month’s shoot already! πŸ™‚
