Bergamot is a good match for seafood and also stronger meats such as game. The juice can be added as a souring agent to sauces and dressings. It can also be used for ceviche.
Other strong flavours that complement bergamot also include gin, lemongrass, ginger and chamomile. Citrus fruits match well with bergamot, such as lemon and grapefruit, but also lesser used varieties such as yuzu and kumquat.
