Description : “A citrus fruit, the Pomelo (Pompelmo in Italian), was missing to bring this trip to Italy to a fragrant end. Wrongly called grapefruit (UVA in Italian) it comes from Asia where it is revered and used as offerings to the Gods. It appeared in Seville in Spain around the 12th and 13th centuries like most citrus fruits and during the Arab domination who were excellent travelers.
Although it is the largest citrus fruit, I like Pomelo for its bitterness; For me, bitter is one of the intelligent smells, unlike sweet, which I find easy and uninteresting. Perhaps because of my Italian background or bitterness in Italy is celebrated in many drinks. Here I worked not only on the lively and acidic freshness specific to Pomelo, but accentuated the bitterness to distinguish it, to make it unique.” Jean-Claude Ellena
