The Lemon Cookbook

Personally we think Lemons are the ingredient of 2015. Not only are they rich in Vitamin C, but they add a hint of freshness to any dish, sweet or savoury.  The Lemon Cookbook features recipes like the Meyer Lemon Risotto with Dungeness Crab Tarragon, and Créme Fraîche, and the Lemon Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Lemon Verbena and Blackberries. We think that’s enough to tempt anyone.
