Zest is a thing that adds flavor, often the peel of an orange or lemon, piquant, but also a keen enjoyment and enthusiasm, a zest for living. I was fascinated by zesting oranges when I was little, and my mother would get out the bumpy grater and transform the normally inedible rind into fragments of color that burst into flavor in frosting. A little goes far. Zest is what enlivens us.
