As part of MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE’s fine dining program, UQAM’s Coeur des sciences invites you to a scientific and gustatory exploration of citrus fruits.  They are essential during winter. They are our prime source of vitamin C, but how well do we really know them? What is a citrus fruit? Where do these fruits come from? Can they be grown in Quebec? Do they have any hidden virtues? And how can they be prepared in meals? Discover the colourful and flavourful world of citrus fruits, from the ever-popular orange and lime to the lesser-known Buddha’s hand, sudachi, and yuzu.
With Luc Brouillet, curator of the Marie-Victorin Herbarium, professor of Biological Sciences at Université de Montréal, and member of the Institut de recherche en biologie végétale;
Vyckie Vaillancourt, owner and founder of O’Citrus, the first Quebec-based company specializing in the production of fine citrus fruits in greenhouses;
And Maxime Delmont, chef at Rosélys restaurant at Fairmont Le Reine Élizabeth.
