Recipe for Grapefruit Tart with Cardamom Cream

From taking a food tour through the Mediterranean to infusing everyday recipes with exotic herbs and spices, home chefs are eager to explore the world through culinary adventures.

Americans are looking for adventure, sophistication and new experiences in the kitchen, according to a recent survey of people ages 45 to 65 commissioned by Florida Grapefruit. Based on the findings, the top five culinary adventures home chefs in this age group want to achieve are:

1. Spice up everyday meals with trendy, of-the-moment ingredients.
2. Add sophistication to beverages by using fresh herbs in unusual ways.
3. Create an exciting new dessert by pairing unexpected flavors, such as smokiness and a Middle Eastern influence.
4. Adopt a Mediterranean flair by exploring the tastes, culture and ethnic flavors of this region.
5. Add an exotic twist to favorite cuisines with a fusion of two favorite globally-inspired dishes.
To deliver on this wish list, celebrity chef Aarti Sequeira has created a series of tangy, exotic and delicious recipes. Each dish features a sweet and zingy favorite – 100 percent Florida grapefruit juice or fresh Florida grapefruit segments.

The recipes, part of the “Taste a World of Zing” collection, feature step-by-step instructions that give even kitchen novices the confidence to try something new. Among them is the Grapefruit Tart with Cardamom Cream, which answers the call to pair unexpected flavors in the same delicious dish.
