During culinary school I tasted many different and very often surprising preparations. Being used to more common flavours like raspberry or lemon, I tasted my first grapefruit sorbet. It tasted like nothing before and opened up my mind to the variation of ingredients.

Grapefruits have a very refreshing taste with a bit of bitterness. In this recipe the sugars are balanced in a way that the sorbet is not too sweet and the grapefruit keeps its zing!
