Naked Lemons | Valentina Cirasola | Designer and Author

Hear, hear, ©Naked Lemons, a short ebook was just born yesterday.
This 26-page booklet was born from the Limoncello making class I teach two seasons out of the year when oranges and lemons are in a fragrant full production. It is something I like to do to get away from my design business. Many times, the participants to my Limoncello classes asked me if the material now written in this booklet was included in my previous published cookery books featuring the cuisine of the Italian southern region of Puglia.
Their question always caught me off guard. I never thought the ancient practice of making simple food out of scraps that generally are thrown away, would have become such a great hit but it did and finally, I decided to collect all of those traditions in one short pamphlet. With this information, no food will go to waste, it will create a new awareness that all parts of foods are good to use for consumption.

The Naked Lemons

Naked Lemons

Limoncello is a yellow drink, traditional of the Italian Amalfi Coast. It is a cordial fragrant drink, sweet to the right point, spirited but not too much, extracted from lemons. It brings people together and makes them happy, it’s all about that yellow energy exuding from the lemons.



Limoncello has a dual function, it can be served with appetizers as an aperitif or a spritz, and it can be served as a digestive after-dinner drink. That’s the reason Limoncello is a popular drink among party-goers and especially during the holidays. I have a lot of pleasure making Limoncello during the summer and give it as a gift for Christmas in a basket full of other goodie produced from the lemons I grow. I make candied lemon peels, lemon cookies, and roasted lemons to mix in baked chickens, salads, sandwiches, and meat rosts. “Giving the gift of food is like giving the gift of love”.

Making Limoncello leaves 10 lemons without the skin. In this booklet, I give suggestions on how to turn all the “naked” lemons into different products for cooking, for daily beauty, products, and daily house cleaning. No chemicals, no harmful agents. That chapter is called: “My food is not only for cooking”.

Get that great yellow, juicy energy. Ciao,

    I’m sorry to be late to the party, Valentina. Somehow I missed this post, but then WordPress and Facebook both have been uncooperative with me…
    This book is beautiful! (Even if I didn’t love lemons, I would love the book.) Wishing you huge success! Hugs on the wing.

      Hi Teagan, I first made an ebook, then I made a paperback, but Amazon didn’t accept a 26 pages paperback. I had to add more chapters and now Amazon recognizes it as a book. I am happy I did it, short and to the point. 😀
