Peeling and sectioning a grapefruit, in my opinion, takes patience and skill with a knife. My mother was an expert and would have several grapefruit ready for the table before I could get one cut open.
I've learned a little trick that I think works pretty good. After removing the peel from the grapefruit, I slice off a bit of both "poles" of the grapefruit orb. This frees up the sections so that as I slip a knife under the membrane, the knife pokes out the other side of the fruit and the section is more apt to emerge in a crescent shape.
I know. It's a small thing, but gee, when you like grapefruit, every little trick in the book helps.
