Broiled Grapefruit

The last few months of the year are always busy at Global Traveler. In a typical year, I would be busy traveling for meetings and experiencing new hotels and, most importantly, their unique cuisines. Over the years one of my favorite breakfast items is the simple grapefruit — tart, sweet, filled with antioxidants and more. Yet when grapefruit is broiled with a teaspoon of brown sugar on top, it quickly becomes a sweet treat I also love.

As it’s finally a bit cold in Los Angeles and I feel nostalgic for travel, I decided to make this warm and sweet breakfast for myself! On Sunday morning I hit Studio City Farmers Markets (open rain, shine or pandemic!) and found a giant pink grapefruit for $1.50 — what a steal! I took her home and made a delicious and simple breakfast alongside Greek yogurt and honey. The directions are simple: Just slice the grapefruit in half, sprinkle a few teaspoons (or as desired) of brown sugar or cinnamon, and place the fruit on tin foil before placing in the broiler for about 3 minutes. I do like mine with an extra dark glaze, so I put it in for a bit longer.

If you are looking for new fruit to add to your winter breakfast, I hope you give this a try!

Ulysses, a New Hotel by Ash, Opens in Baltimore

Hotelier Ash welcomes its fourth hotel, Ulysses, to its collection. Situated in Mount Vernon, Baltimore, the 116-room hotel features an all-day café and late-night drinking parlor. The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design. The hotel earns its name, Ulysses, from a ship that brought Bavarian immigrants to Baltimore at the turn of the century. The name also pays homage to James Joyce’s legendary and revolutionary novel and to the Greek hero, Odysseus.
