    Zest is the grated outer yellow part of the peel while the peel consists of a thicker section of skin which is usually finely chopped into slivers.

    the peel is the whole outside of the lemon, while zest is only the top layer of the peel, usually scraped off with a zester or (cheese) shredder. If you cook something that calls for lemon zest, you definitely would not want the peel, it is thicker and bitter. The zest has a juicier content to it.
