Many of our friends feel trapped by our forced confinement at home. All these times, they have asked for recipes and ways of cooking; the second requirement is easy to answer. However, it is sometimes challenging to implement, concerning recipes it is a little tricky for me as I do not keep accurate grams of ingredients at home. Maybe because in my working life I record almost everything, recipes, grams, preparation time and cooking time, so to organize the restaurant service but also to accurately cost our operation.
Those days we are preserving citrus fruits. We will have for few lemon trees a second chance at summer times as some varieties do fruits twice a year, so I decide to give a recipe of a lemon cake, which I love to have with the five o'clock earl grey tea.
