One Great Plate: Kumquats

Where to enjoy these little pop-in-your-mouth citrus nuggets.

Kumquats are in season and these little pop-in-your-mouth citrus nuggets are a nice way for chefs to add a punch of brightness to dishes. Trattoria Tosca puts them in a green salad with chevre and hazelnuts, the beauties pair with cauliflower and lentils in Dakota’s duck entrée,  while the La Belle Vie dessert menu flaunts a frozen chestnut parfait with caramel chantilly and kumquat sherbet. If you feel like tackling them at home, check out foodie blog Relishing It for a killer kumquat marmalade recipe.
