SEE THIS YEAR’S ENTRIES & VOTE ON YOUR FAVORITE

The holidays are in high gear, and before you know it, it will be the beginning of the year. January is prime time to showcase delicious citrus in exciting and delicious ways and is also the time for Limehouse Produce’s annual Citrus Celebration.

This year, we are asking chefs and mixologists to focus on one very special variety of fruit: the Page Mandarin. The Page is a cross between a Minneola Tangelo and a Clementine Mandarin, making it essentially ¾ mandarin and ¼ grapefruit by ancestry. The grapefruit gene gives this sweet and easy-to-peel fruit a more complex flavor that the super sweet clementine, lending itself to tart cocktails, winter salads and palate cleansing pastries.

Competitors can submit savory, sweet, or drinks utilizing the Page Mandarin and any additional citrus fruits they wish. All submissions will be posted on the Limehouse Produce website starting January 9. The public can vote on their favorites as well as go and visit the locations to order the items. They can then post photos for a chance to win a gift certificate at a winning location.

If interested in being a part of the 2017 Citrus Celebration, email angel@hometeampr.com. We will then deliver a sample of Page Mandarins to try out on week of December 19. Dish and drink details, recipes and photos are due no later than Friday, January 6 in order to have part of the website on the official kick-off on Monday, January 9.

For the Celebration, there will be a panel of judges that visit the top 5 drinks and dishes (as selected by the judges) to taste the items the week of February 20. The judges will select one winner for Best Drink and Best Dish. Each winner will be promoted on the website, social media outlets, and to the media. The restaurant with the winning dish will be featured on the back page of Charleston City’s Paper’s DIRT and the winning drink will be featured in a ½ page ad in The Local Palate. *Note: ads will be designed by Limehouse in cooperation with winning restaurants.

Interested restaurants can submit their photos and caption details to angel@hometeampr.com. We hope to have you a part and look forward to hearing from you soon!
