Natural bergamot extract has a zesty, rustic and fresh flavour that is only slightly acidic with a fresh, green, tea fragrance that is slightly piquant and resinous (pine). There is a hint of rose that is very lightly smoked and iodised. In cooking, it is used with citrus fruits in a custard tart, sorbet or lemon mousse, in fruit coulis, jelly, jam, apple and bergamot charlotte, almond-bergamot tartlet, pear-vanilla-bergamot dessert. It also goes very well with chocolate, grilled fish (mackerel, sardine) on a skewer or en papillote.
