Even so I tried to taste, shoot or eat a citron tarte meringuee almost daily last trip in Paris.
Tres chic MIYOU's version at La Bon Marche was much more lemony but the meringue again was too mushy. In the end, after two weeks of intensive research, I must sadly conclude that we're dealing with a tarte au citron i.e. a lemon curd pie + a dollop of meringue of varying sizes thrown on top. In some cases this is can be a mere twirl of meringue.
No doubt the citron meringuee is 'in' right now in Paris. I saw it everywhere.
Sorry that's how I see it PBers.
I suggest you pick up this tarte-shaped cookbook at BHV (9.90 euros) and get cracking on the lemon tarte and call it a day. Making a good meringue can be hellish.
The best solution of all? A French citron meringuee candle from Comptoir de Famille = no calories.
BONJOUR CITRON MERINGUEE!
