The blood orange, with its garnet inside, finds its way into cocktails and salsa, sorbet and salad. And Almond, the Bridgehampton bistro, plans a blood-orange themed dinner for Valentine's Day next Saturday.
Executive chef Jason Weiner has fashioned a four-course meal with citrus sinensis as the constant. The cost is $75. It will be offered on Feb. 14, starting at 5:30 p.m.
Weiner will prepare Montauk oysters paired with a blood orange-Margarita granita; salad with blood orange chips; duck-and-foie gras ravioli a l'orange and Peconic Bay scallops with a blood-orange accented sauce; roasted rack of pork with blood orange-and-fennel mostarda; smoked and roasted Loch Duarte salmon with a blood-orange misoyaki, or marinade; and a Mexican chocolate torte for two, wuth blood-orange gel.
The restaurant's a la carte menu also will be available.
