Recipe: Edd Kimber’s Lemon Tart

baking

There’s not many desserts as classic and timeless as a lemon tart.

Simple and sweet in all the right ways despite its sour origins, it’s often deceptively tricky to get right and can take patisserie chefs a while to truly master. With Edd Kimber’s lemon tart recipe from his cookbook Patisserie Made Simple, he’ll guide you through the steps and secrets to making a perfect lemon tart, without having to have bucket loads of experience.

Edd says: “It is often said that the mark of a good pâtisserie or restaurant is the quality of its lemon tart – a deceptively simple recipe – and I would agree. Although the basic recipe is fairly straightforward – a lemon custard baked in a sweet pastry shell – making a perfect example with the right textures and flavours is the sign of a great pastry chef. My version isn’t a classic baked tart but a slightly more modern and easier take on the classic, using a lemon cream.”

Patisserie Made Simple by Edd Kimber is published by Kyle Books (£16.99). Photography by Laura Edwards.
