Dive into the cultural and culinary legacy of the humble lemon in The Gourmand’s Lemon: A Collection of Stories and Recipes. This fascinating book was created by the editors of The Gourmand — an award-winning food and culture journal that marries gastronomy and art. Every aspect of that glorious yellow fruit is explored within these pages through a series of brief essays — how it acted as a muse for the still life masters; how it shaped the Medici Dynasty; its use as a literary device by many a famed writer; how it saved sailors from scurvy; the science behind its astonishingly intrinsic genealogy; how it helped to create the Mafia; the many ways it has cropped up in the world of interior design; its cameos in pop music; the role that the good old fashioned lemonade stand plays in American entrepreneurship; and so much more. All of this lemon lore is illustrated with vibrant photographs and reproductions of iconic citrus-centric works of art from the likes of Henri Matisse, Frida Kahlo, Edourd Manet, Andy Warhol and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, just to name a few. You'll also find a round-up of The Gourmand’s favorite peelers, zesters, juicers and other lemon accessories, as well as a series of sixty mouthwatering recipes that star this sunny citrus fruit for the home chef. That includes savory dishes like Tagliolini al Limone and Lemon Poached Salmon; sweets like Lemon Granita and Swedens’s Citronkladdkaka; sippable lemons like the French 75 and the Gin Martini with a Twist; and accompany lemons in the forms of sauces, preserves, vinaigrettes and more. A glowing tribute to this ever-present cultural icon (and ever-essential kitchen ingredient), The Gourmand’s Lemon is a must-have for any self-professed lemon-lover.
