In the second volume of TASCHEN’s series with cult-favourite ‘The Gourmand’ journal, the cultural and culinary history of the lemon is celebrated. A star of Renaissance gardens, with the power to ward off scurvy, it had a hand in forming the mob, acts as a muse in art and its juice has been used as an invisible ink since 600AD to pen covert messages. Through a collection of original essays and archetype recipes, illustrated with contemporary photography and historic artworks, this large volume explores all the facets of the deceptively simple lemon. 


‘The Gourmand’ is David Lane and Marina Tweed, creators of the eponymous food and culture journal founded in London in 2011. Through publications, films and experiences they explore the fields of art, design, literature, film, fashion, and music through the universal subject of food.
