You may remember a while back when I told you about a competition Florida Grapefruit were holding over at their FaceBook page.

Last week I went to London along with a few other food bloggers and had a lovely day with the winner Victoria Ashley and Celebrity Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner.

Victoria won the competition with her delicious Florida grapefruit, honey and ginger cheesecake.

Lisa showed us a couple of recipes using Florida grapefruit which is the sweetest and juiciest variety of grapefruit! Perfect for making dressings and a whole load of recipes I wouldn't have thought of.

First of all here we are, Helen, Michelle and myself segmenting a grapefruit.

I was quite pleased with my segments!

Then we watched Victoria making her winning cheesecake with Lisa as her helper.

Then we all sat down to a lovely dinner and the main dish 'Smoked chicken, avocado and Florida grapefruit salad' which was seriously good!

  1. Looks like you had a super day Jan! I hardly ever eat grapefruit, I suppose I should give it another go.
