Italian menus, both in restaurants and in Italian homes, are strongly linked to the seasons. They are regularly changed to incorporate the freshest and tastiest fruits and vegetables of the month, such as lemons, especially in summer.
Walking through different regions and cities in Italy, you will often see fruit stands filled with bright, big lemons. Nothing better to beat the heat.
Our tip: combine two Italian specialties, lemons and Loacker wafers, in a simple, tasty and enticing treat.
