Lemon Meringue Tart: Deconstructing Top Desserts from Top Bakers

Chantilly’s Exquisite Treat

Yellow for Real The velvety curd is made with fresh lemons; Chantilly does not use any food coloring to achieve the vibrant yellow color. And there won’t be any lumps in the curd due to overcooking—a lumpy curd is not a happy curd. 

Tart-rific Approximately 60 of each tart size are sold every week; other Chantilly tarts to try include the Key lime tart and passion fruit mango tart. 

Toasted White Meringue To finish off the dessert, meringue is piped to a desired design and lightly torched.

Serving Suggestion “We recommend the lemon meringue as a delicious end to a dinner or with a cup of coffee as an afternoon snack,” says co-owner Maria Delgado Gambini, Mariana’s sister. “But we also have many fans of this dessert who come in to enjoy it for breakfast!” $2 (2-inch), $6.25 (4-inch), and $24 (8-inch)
