Review

"Lemonade. Just the word conjures up sunshine, picnics, memories of childhood, and the wonderfully simple things in life." —The Beach Reporter

"With a menu featuring ingredients such as champagne vinaigrette, black kale, lemongrass, and saffron creme fraiche, you will be wishing there were four meals a day." —Everything L.A. blog

"Grab a tray and choose from an array of salads...or try one of the pot roasts simmering in colorful cast-iron cookware. Wash it down with ginger peach lemonade." —The New York Times Travel Section

Can't wait to try more recipes.

There were a handful of dishes that I plan to make again and again, but there were too many basic sandwich and/or dessert ideas that I have no interest in.

Firstly, if you have ever been to Lemonade you should know that it is a great place to eat. They only use the freshest ingredients and it is healthy. I pre-ordered the book just about a week ago and received it the day it came out. Now, of course, I have not made all the recipes in the book yet. But, I do have to say that it is probably one of the most convenient and less intimidating cookbooks I have ever read. Sorry Julia child, making your Beef Bourguignon is not the easiest thing. On top of the healthy, California-style, home cookin' recipes, Chef Alan Jackson gives you little tidbits on how to make each dish better. He also tells you why he chooses certain ingredients. What I really like about this cookbook is that it isn't just a cookbook that tells you the recipe and how to prepare it, but also gives you some pointers from the chef himself. It's as if he's sitting right next to you, helping you throughout the process. The book also gives you a little background on the creation of Lemonade, which is a very interesting read. Honestly, I love Lemonade and am very excited to have the ability to make some of the dishes that they serve at the actual restaurant. Oh, and if you ever had their Lemonade drinks, you now can make those too because the recipes are in the book! Now that's one less thing I have to think about for my next meal, which is, what should I eat? I guess the only drawback to this cookbook was that I wanted more pictures. There are pictures, I just wanted more because we not only eat food with our mouths, but with our eyes. But, I find that issue with most cookbooks anyway. This is definitely a buy for all Lemonade fans and also for those who like fresh-ingredient, healthy, home cookin' recipes.

I LOVE Lemonade's restaurants in Los Angeles, so was understandably happy to learn that they released a cookbook. However, after making 8 recipes from the book, have concluded that they aren't giving away any of their secrets. Recipes made at home don't approach the level of deliciousness encountered at the restaurant. If you are familiar with their food, you will likely be disappointed with your homemade creations which don't quite hit the mark. Maybe they just didn't spend enough time testing that their large quantity recipes translate appropriately to portions for 4-6 people? Anyway, this book will be on its way to the used bookstore pretty soon.

Let me preface this with I never write reviews. I'll repeat: I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS!!! I have to also say that I am a baker and went to culinary school and have not "maybe sorta messed up following the directions?" as per the manager of the store in Pasadena when I called inquiring why NOTHING I've made tastes like it does in the restaurant. That being said, the recipes ARE good and do taste great, but if you're thinking that they have given up secrets to their recipes, you'll be disappointed.

I purchased this book specifically to make my mother-in-law's favorite Coconut Tres Leche cake. The cake came out great, moist, great frosting and great filling. It was no tres leche. I called to ask what the bakers use in the middle to make THEIR layer very moist like it was literally soaked in something, they just said that the recipes are true. This also happened with the brussel sprouts, moroccan chicken, jamaican chicken, mac & cheese, snap peas, and red miso beef short ribs.

I can say this is a great cook book in that the recipes are good, but if you are getting it expecting to make something from the restaurant, you'll be very disappointed.

I love the Lemonade eateries and I love having the recipes at home. The recipe selection is pretty good but I wish it included more of the seasonal salads. I was surprised to see the recipes for macarons (which I would never attempt to make at home) and was sad that a couple of my favorite veggie dishes didn't make the cut.

If you love Lemonade then you will of course, love all of the recipes in this book. My only complaint is that there are not pictures of each recipe...The pictures of the food is usually what garners my interest so I docked a star for that.
