Solerno Brand Ambassador Evonne Eadie says, “Capriccio Osteria was the obvious choice as it’s renowned for its quality produce and flavour combinations. These attributes mirror the Solerno brand, with the blood oranges being hand-picked in Sicily at their peak of the season and the careful infusion of these with lemons to create the perfectly complex and intense liqueur”.
Head Chef at Capriccio Osteria, Nicole Bampton adds, “Throughout my years of experience with the Italian cuisine, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with blood oranges, which is why I am so excited for this collaboration. Due to the versatility of blood oranges, they can be paired with almost any food; however I recommend black olives, scallops and fish”.
