French bakery and patisserie producer Brioche Pasquier has unveiled its new pre-portioned Tarte au Citron - translated as lemon tart.

Using French butter, sugar and eggs by Brioche Pasquier’s pâtissiers, the 800g Tarte au Citron is pre-portioned into 10 slices and is made with a golden shortcrust pastry base.

The lemon tart, which has an 18-month shelf life, is frozen immediately after baking and can be defrosted within two hours. 

Jon Turonnet, foodservice sales manager at Brioche Pasquier, said that lemon tart is one of the truly great, classic desserts, and is never out of place on a menu.

“A good lemon tart should have a thin, crisp shortcrust base and a really citrusy lemon filling,” Turonnet said. “By working with exacting traditional French pâtisserie methods and using time-tested recipes, our pâtissiers are able to bake the very finest Tarte au Citron, with the lightness and freshness that you only find in the finest French pâtisserie.”

In May, Brioche Pasquier released its latest éclair offerings with the launch of its choux pastry treats.
