i'm late

Tuesdays With Dorie: The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart

sheesh.. so technically I'm late again huh? gosh.. the bad things just keep coming. *ouch*. Okay, to cut the chase before i fall flat on my face from fatigue. Lets first introduce the event! Well, with roots from one of its fore-fathers, oops, forgive me, fore-mothers; Laurie from quirky cupcake, also the host of cupcake hero (one of my fav events as u guys shld alr knoe) began this humble event as a booster to start baking from her new book Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. Rooting in people to bake along with her as she challenged herself to some of the most mindblowing recipes within the hidden treasure of a book written by one of the most talented writers. Gosh.. trust me on this one. I was a Dorie Greenspan fan, once i laid my hands on 'Paris Sweets' by her as well. okay, back to TWD history.. so the threesome grew to its present size of 150+ members (correct me if i'm wrong, i'm reallie a clutz with statistics) in a matter of months. And therefore, with that this event is a now a major success with its own website (pls refer to the link on my sidebar) and its own recipe rotation list.


Here, members of TWD bake the same recipe as selected by one member every week and post it out on a tuesday for the whole world to enjoy!!! so for my virgin TWD post, I'll be presenting to you 'The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart' featured on pg 331-333 of the book. as chosen by our dearest Mary from Starting from Scratch .
the verdict .. my gosh.. melt in your mouth goodness. the lemon cream was certainly a cut above the rest, including the other lemon tart recipes that I've tried in the past. This revealed a creamy, buttery goodness filled with zesty lemons and a pinch of citrus with every bite. What heightened the experience was without a doubt the sensation of cold cream melting with every bite. It was absolutely gorgeous.. best thing is that I've got loads of lemon cream left over.. hehe. *yum*

oh yes, and do pardon me for my slighty shabby efforts. I was rather contented at the taste of the product, think the lovely cream, and neglected the presentation of the tart. Oh well, its the taste that matters most yar? despite its large serving, brother and mum had two servings each at one sitting. haha. it was heavenly.. especially for lemon lovers like us. Can't wait for my Australia trip in June.... imagine the baskets and baskets of yellow lemons.. WAHHH!!!

With that, I've come to the end of my virgin post fort TWD! and i'm already looking forward to next week's recipe!!! marshmellows as chosen by Judy of Judy's Gross Eats. wow.. like home made marshmellows! finally the chance to embark on this one, been procrastinating ever since my read of Paris Sweets. What a sweet coincidence though! thanks Judy for the fantabulous choice!

do check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers on the blogroll! such talents!! its amazing how such a group of people have congregated over a small starting ambition. another miracle at work i must say.
