Dorie Greenspan's Meyer Lemon Curd

Meyer Lemon Curd- Eat Boutique
April showers created the perfect afternoon for catching up with you all & sharing some goodies that I recently discovered. Grab a pencil!
You know I love lemons, and in my previous post I showed you why Yellow is currently my favorite color!  But for now I want to tell you all about Dorie Greenspan's Meyer Lemon Curd!  It is out of this world!Dorie Greenspan 
I discovered Dorie Greenspan while writing a story about Sarabeth Levine of Sarabeth's Kitchen.   I was baking my way through Sarabeth's Bakery: From My Hands to Yours & was looking forward to Dorie's latest book, Around My French Table
The evening that I brought it home, I didn't drop it off in the kitchen where I would dive into it the next morning. Instead I brought it up to my bedside table and by midnight....well, let's just say that Dorie & I had become best foodie friends.  You can be foodie friends with me & Dorie too.  She will hold your hand & tell you great stories & you will learn how to confidently prepare her superb renditions of the great French classics, but home-style!
Last night I was listening to a podcast with Dorie Greenspan at Authors' Answers Series from Leite's Culinaria hosted by award-winning food writer David Leite. They both had me smiling from the start. I love her wonderfully encouraging voice that comes through in the interview & in each and every one of her incredible books!

Dorie Greenspan has written 10 award winning books & she also writes the lively blog,  In the Kitchen And On The Road With Dorie! 
My Francophile friends will enjoy Paris By Mouth, a beautiful collaborative website, edited by Dorie Greenspan & other established food writers, that is changing the way people find and appreciate delicious things in Paris.
I'm getting to the Meyer Lemon Curd.  Good things come to those who read on...I promise!
Many of you know I'm a foodie but I'm no food writer.
Eat Boutique to the rescue!
Eat Boutique

Maggie Battista founded Eat Boutique in 2007 in order to celebrate handmade food experiences.  She thinks nothing of driving long distances for one amazing night with a great chef, farmer or host.

"We’re a tiny business that shares handmade food stories, curates handmade food gift boxes, and offers handmade food experiences...We believe each bite should be worth it...We believe a great meal is worth driving an extra mile (or ten), especially if the cooks pop out to say hello and thank you...We think indie chefs and restaurateurs are amazing, but so are home cooks and farmers."
Have a look at this wonderful Spring Handmade Food Gift Box from Eat Boutique!

Now, I'm happy to tell you that Maggie Battista and her team at Eat Boutique are as crazy about lemons as I am!  How about some Meyer Lemon Liquor...

Wonderful post Lisa. You had me upfront and center with yellow, lemon and liquor. Seriously, lemon liquor infused with lavender or thyme? YUM..

Thank you dear Lisa xo

JMW said...

I have not heard of her, so I will definitely check out Dorie Greenspan! I love lemon curd, especially the kind made at the Elmwood Inn here in Kentucky. Their teas are wonderful, too. Lemon curd on toast or a scone - delicious!

Looks de-lish! I love cookbooks -- and lemons! The lemons invite me to drink lots of water. And cookbooks are so fun and inspiring.

Hi Lisa, what a great post! You being a Meyer lemon fan, you must try the Silver Palate's iced lemon cake recipe. It's the absolute best. If you can't find the cookbook I posted it in my archives somewhere I can get it to you in a snap! Happy Easter to you my blogging friend, Shiree'

Jo said...

I've got to get busy ~ so much to see and learn. Thanks for all the links.

Lemon curd is one of my favorite go-tos for a quick dessert when I'm in a pinch for time.


Millie said...

MOTH is the curd maker here & just like Linda he makes a wicked Lime Curd when limes are plentiful. Last year he made a batch of Lime & Passionfruit & it was divine. The best thing to do with lemons is of course, make Limoncello (aka Rocket Fuel). 4 shots of this over ice & I can't remember my own name & address!
