French bakery and patisserie producer Brioche Pasquier has introduced the Tarte Citron Meringueé to its range in two versions.

The Tartelettes Citron Meringuées contain tangy lemon filling in a crisp shortcrust pastry base, topped with a soft and sweet Italian meringue topping.

Each tartelette is 100g and arrives frozen in packs of five. There is also a larger tarte version which weighs in at 1kg and can be cut into 10 to 12 portions.

Brioche Pasquier said in a statement: “The butter rich base remains crisp even after defrosting, giving the perfect dessert every time.”

It added: “Any member of the kitchen team can assemble and present dessert orders ready for service. Serve as they are or give them added impact by adding a strawberry or twist of lemon zest.”

Last month Brioche Pasquier introduced a selection of four Continental-style desserts.
