 A Journey Through Time: The Origins of the Lemon Curd Tart

As I sit down to savor a slice of our  version of Lemon Curd Meringue Tart, I'm transported to a world of tangy sweetness and buttery perfection. The history of this delightful treat stretches back through the ages, but we've managed to capture the essence of this classic dessert in our own unique way.

A Medieval Delicacy: The Rise of Lemon Curd

The lemon curd tart has a rich and storied history, with roots dating back to Medieval Europe. It was during this time that lemon curd, a smooth and creamy citrus custard, first gained popularity. Lemons were a prized fruit, often associated with wealth and luxury due to their rarity. However, as the fruit became more accessible, people began experimenting with its vibrant flavor, resulting in the creation of lemon-based desserts.

 A British Favorite: The Lemon Curd Tart in the 19th Century

Fast forward to the 19th century, and the lemon curdtart had firmly established itself as a beloved British dessert. Its tangy, yet sweet taste and smooth texture made it a favorite among many. Lemon curd was traditionally made by combining lemon juice, sugar, eggs, and butter, resulting in a luscious filling that perfectly balanced the tartness of the citrus with the richness of the butter.
