Citrus and Spice explores the relationship between food, flavour and our responses to what we eat, leading us through 12 categories of flavour corresponding to the months of the year, from Citrus and Earth to Smoke and Spice. As Sybil Kapoor says in her introduction 'At the heart of all good food lies one magic element - flavour. It is flavour that can make the difference between something tasting ordinary and being irresistible. It is flavour that instantly links us to memories and associations, which in turn influences our mood..." In keeping with this novel approach Sybil has created stylish and contemporary recipes such as Seared Salmon with Cucumber Buttermilk; Grilled Fig with Feta, Fennel and Rocket and Praline Tea Ice Cream.
