I have a huge Blood Orange tree at my old house.

Last year my dad let me try one and I was hooked. A couple weeks later I had a Chocolate Dessert with Blood Oranges at Matthew’s that ignited a fire in me. It inspired me do a 5-Course dinner focused on Blood Oranges at The Blind Rabbit. Fast forward to now and Blood Orange season has returned. Blind Rabbit said no, so I reached out to Kitchen on San Marco and the rest was history.

After dinner we did a white elephant gift exchange and played rock, paper, scissors for a bottle of Carve Vodka. Thank you Carve for the vodka!
