Celebrate Local Citrus Season With a 'Mandarin Magic' Class


Posted on December 10

Kira O'Donnell

Sacramento’s citrus trees are once again teeming with juicy fruit, and now’s the time to savor their luscious bounty. Stop into your nearest farmers’ market to find fresh blood oranges, mandarins, Meyer lemons, kumquats and grapefruits plucked from our region’s trees.

Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op is offering a demonstration-style class called “Mandarin Magic” this Thursday, Dec. 12 to help you enjoy our local citrus. Joanne Neft and Laura Kenny, authors of Placer County Real Food, will create a mandarin-inspired dinner for attendees, including spinach salad with mandarins (dressed with kiwi-mandarin vinaigrette); roasted leg of lamb with mandarin marmalade; sautéed Romanesco with bacon; and spiced mandarins with pomegranate and kiwi. Mandarin mimosas will also be offered. The class/dinner runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and costs $45 per person ($35 for Co-op owners). Visit the Co-op’s website for details and to sign up.

Feeling adventurous? Try this unique, brightly flavored kumquat margarita – a delectable way to savor local citrus (and liven up the holiday season).
