From 19th February to 3rd March, Saison will host its very own Citrus Festival, inspired by the Fête du Citron - celebrated in Menton, the French home of Colagreco’s three Michelin-starred restaurant, Mirazur.
Alongside lemon-adorned decorations, the Citrus Festival menu brings an exclusive taste of the French Riviera to central London, showcasing uses of different citrus varieties, including the famed Menton lemon. As a tradition, Mauro Colagreco has always celebrated the festival at his restaurant Mirazur – which was ranked No.1 at the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards in 2019 – with a citrus-inspired menu each year.
Orkney Scallop with blood orange, Cedrat lemon, watercress, tardivo and dill; London Burrata with citrus, kumquat vinaigrette, coriander seeds, basil and pistachios; Cornish Chicken, that has been spit-roasted with lemon and served with taggiascha olive, winter leaves, caramelised lemons, and wild Sea Bass, with artichoke mousseline, capers, olives and a citrus sauce vierge.
A Sgroppino, made with prosecco, citron sorbet and kumquat, and a Carnival Spritz, featuring gin, elderflower, soda and a Menton lemon sherbet. To finish the meal, enjoy a Mentoncello, a limoncello made in-house at Raffles London at The OWO using lemons sourced from Menton.
