1. Lemon and Lime Cookbook – Richard Donker

From margaritas to hollandaise sauce, from chicken picatta to key lime pie — this book includes all the great recipes that use lemons and limes and many new ones as well. There are over 300 recipes in 15 chapters, with an introduction that describes the various cooking and other household uses for lemons and limes. What makes this cookbook special is how the author has garnered these recipes. From hand-scribbled notes made in restaurants around the world, newspaper and magazine clippings from dozens of popular and vague publications, and even postings from Internet chat groups and cooking Web sites. Donker has tried each recipe at least once himself and has made some modification, but where the recipe is essentially intact as he found it.

The downside of the book is that there are no photographs but this is made up by  the delicious goodness of his lemon infused dishes.


2. Lemons: A Country Garden Cookbook - Christopher Idone

This cookbook offers splendid, chic dishes that everyone is going to love digging into. The best recipe of this book is definitely the lemon meringue pie and the lemon squares. The book contains 40 recipes and an equal number of visually appealing color photographs. The recipes are fairly international in scope and you will be impressed with the variety of dishes mentioned in this lemon cookbook. You don’t have to be a veteran in the kitchen as the dishes are fairly simple to make. This book is really good value for money.
