The deceptively simple lemon takes center stage in the cookbook 'The Gourmand's Lemon. A Collection of Stories and Recipes', the second volume of TASCHEN's collaboration with The Gourmand, masters at the rich intersection of food and art.

The lemon is the star of Renaissance gardens, which shaped the Medici dynasty, has the power to fight scurvy, had a hand in shaping the Mafia, and whose juice has been used since 600 CE as an invisible ink to write down secret messages, these cheerful yellow orbs are ripe with intrigue. The Gourmand charts the fruit's amazingly intricate genealogy, examines its role as a literary tool for the likes of Joan Didion, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tom Wolfe and James Joyce, and explores its unique representation of the American dream through lemonade stands.

A favorite subject of the giants of art history, the lemon captivates in the still lifes of the Old Masters and inspired the breakthroughs of modern visionaries such as Picasso, Matisse and Warhol. Lemons are also found on the cutting edge of design in Philippe Starck's iconic Juicy Salif and the modest but revolutionary Jif Lemon. The presence of lemons extends to the decorative arts, from Arts and Crafts wallpaper to mythological ceramics. Even the famous Bloomsbury Group found lemons enmeshed in their literary love affairs.

Accompanying these citrus-centric anecdotes are a foreword by chef and acclaimed author Simon Hopkinson and an introduction by art critic and author Jennifer Higgie, along with more than 60 lemon-infused recipes in global cuisines and for every occasion - including perfect poultry, decadent sauces, classic cocktails and delicious desserts, with custom photography by Bobby Doherty.

The Gourmand's Egg. A Collection of Stories and Recipes
Poached, scrambled, boiled, whipped into a cocktail, transformed into a painting medium, thrown at an enemy's house. The cookbook 'The Gourmand's Egg. A Collection of Stories and Recipes' celebrates the link between food and art through original recipes and stories.
