The Secrets of Amalfi

The Secrets of Amalfi

In this episode, we learn three recipes inspired by the sweet, softball-sized lemons abundant along the Amalfi coast of Italy. First, Christopher Kimball cooks Spaghetti with Lemon Pesto, demonstrating a pesto recipe that uses lemon zest instead of basil. Then, Milk Street Cook Josh Mamaclay makes Lemon and Shrimp Risotto with Fresh Basil, finished with an egg yolk and cream to give the rice a lush, velvety texture. Finally, Milk Street Cook Lynn Clark bakes an Amalfi-Style Lemon Cake that’s moist and tangy thanks to a lemon simple syrup.
