Lemon Meringue Custard Cake

with Lemon Curd Sauce and Lemon Thyme Syrup

Lemon cake

Nothing can immediately transport you to another place and time like food, whether it’s a whiff of curry that brings you to that market in Jaipur, a sharp bite of wasabi that has you back in the cooking class in Tokyo, or a bite of your favorite mole that takes you to a plaza in Oaxaca.

We recently chatted with chef Kerry Sear, TCS World Travel’s Director of Food and Beverage, about a favorite dessert that transports him to Italy. He created this lemon cake years ago while vacationing on the Amalfi Coast surrounded by orchards of fragrant Sorrento lemons. Now that you are staying home and might have some free time, why not give this delicious cake a go? We of course recommend serving it with iced limoncello from the Amalfi Coast to help take you to that southern Italian sunshine.
