Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
There is every conceivable sweet use of the lemon in Lori Longbotham's Luscious Lemon Desserts (Chronicle Books; $19.95), including a spectacular lemon meringue pie (with a long-secret process for perfect meringue fully revealed). Chapters cover lemon dessert basics, cakes, pies and tarts, custardy desserts (and a perfect lemon souffle), cookies, frozen desserts, and a selection of confections and sauces. One chapter of special favorites includes a great shortcake and a lemony tiramisu. Each recipe headnote ends with the number of lemons needed for the recipe—a little touch, but one that endeared the book to me. Rounded out by lovely photos by Alison Miksch, Luscious Lemon Desserts is a great little book and will make a great little gift this holiday season. -Cookbook Digest

"Lemon" especially when applied to cars is often used as a term of derogation. But Lori Longbotham, former Gourmet magazine editor, has better ideas about this beautiful fruit, and her Luscious Lemon Desserts explores lemon cakes, pies, puddings, custards, cookies, ice creams, shortcakes, cr pes, truffles, peels, curds, popsicles, confections and sauces with panache and, well, zest. Over 70 recipes for decadent treats Profiteroles, Chilled Lemon Souffle, Chocolate Ganache Tart with Lots of Lemon, Luscious Lemon and Blueberry Tiramisu, Lemon Cr me Br l e, Lemon Mascarpone-Clementine Gratins and Lemon Sorbet-Filled Lemons accompanied by mesmerizing color photos, convincingly make Longbotham's point that "lemons are the divas of desserts." This book offers some of the same tips on buying and zesting lemons as Lemon Zest, but otherwise there's impressively little overlap between the two. Anyone craving summer desserts will find these recipes mouthwateringly irresistible. ( July 1) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

I like this book because the desserts are really easy to make and still incredibly delicious and impressive. Everything I have made has worked perfectly. The directions are very clear.

I love lemon desserts. I'm glad that there's a book devoted just to lemon desserts, finally! The pictures are very beautiful and the recipes are easy. I made the lemon and blueberry tiramusu and it was really good and really unusual.
