Orange slices are one of the tastiest and healthiest foods we can treat ourselves to throughout the day—whether it's for breakfast, a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, or a sweet ending to a meal. The most elegant way to serve an orange is to segment the slices. This means that you're left without the unpleasant texture of the pith and membrane. In culinary terms, this is also called 'to supreme' the orange, which refers to the act of extracting the best part of the fruit. The same terminology can be used for other food types, as well; with meat, for instance, to supreme would simply mean to fillet or remove the bones.
