Samantha Parish has winter desserts that sing of citrus.
Name a dish that wouldn’t benefit from a squeeze of juice or a scattering of zest? I cling to citrus in winter to bring my food and my mood up and out of the layers of cold. These winter jewels breathe life into the comfort food we all crave in the cooler months and punch flavour into our cooking to carry us through to spring. Call it a winter romance. It’s never a bad idea to grab just one more lemon or lime; it will always be used whether it’s in a gin and tonic or squeezed over avocado on toast. Citrus is always ready to crank things up a level, and isn’t that what we want in winter?
