Leading Sicilian citrus farmers Rudolf and Benedikta von Freyberg discuss the history and practice of citrus-growing in Italy with BBC Radio Food programme producer and journalist and part-Sicilian Dan Saladino.

The von Freybergs own the well-known San Giorgio citrus estate in Sicily where they have been growing the island’s unique blood oranges for 30 years.

Meanwhile, Saladino has a Sicilian father and extended Sicilian family and spent long periods of his childhood watching Sicilian home cooks in action and visiting local markets. He is now a long-standing series producer on BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme,  a regular presenter and journalist on food, and an organiser of the BBC Food Awards.

Helena Attlee author of, The Land Where Lemons Grow, was originally billed to appear at this event. Unfortunately, she is no longer able to appear due to circumstances beyond her control.

A citrus-themed dinner based on recipes from Helena Attlee’s book and overseen by the renowned cookery writer Claudia Roden will be held at Worcester College on Friday evening.
