Other highlights: A lemon is really a possibility — that’s the main premise of this cookbook. You can squeeze it into a cocktail, use it to brighten a salad dressing, whisk it into a dessert, or any other number of very useful and tasty applications. Gwendolyn Richards thoroughly explores all these options with all the available citrus fruits, bouncing from English puddings to Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches to Morrocan stews and back. It’s a testament to the versatility of this family of fruits and how crucial they are to our cooking!
