That citrus kiss, that tang, that pucker, it makes some of us swoon. Pucker is for the citrus lovers amongst us who'd gladly pass over chocolate or caramel for a lemon meringue or key lime pie. But citrus love extends beyond these common favorites, and extends itself to drinks like Lemon Bourbon Sours, Sidecars and Moscow Mules, it touches appetizers like Scallops with Meyer Lemon Beurre Blanc and exotic mains like Citrus-Braised Pork Shoulder Tacos.

Pucker highlights the flavor of lemons, limes and grapefruits in over 100 recipes from drinks, salads, sides, breakfasts, mains, and desserts. It contains tips on leftover fruits for those recipes that call for a little zest and leave your lemon or lime to linger on waiting for a use. It highlights the best tools to get in your kitchen, and it contains countless charming stories and helpful hints from an author as passionate about citrus as you are.

Ready your tastebuds for Pucker.
