It's always a good idea to eat more foods that match our mood and keep us energized. This roasted baby carrot and grapefruit gremolata from the forthcoming cookbook Bridgehampton Inn & Restaurant by Sybille van Kempen, Chef Brian Szostak, and Kyle Fengler, features the slightly sweet taste of crunchy carrots and the refreshing zing of grapefruit. 

"I'm a huge fan of textures and flavors with my food, and this dish is the perfect example. From the sweetness of the carrots, the creaminess of the ripe avocado, the crunch of the nuts, and the pop of citrus…you pick up something different with every bite," says Chef Brian Szostak.
