Lyndey Milan's Lemon curd tart

Preparation time
15 mins + 60 mins resting + 15 mins freezing
Cooking time
40-50 mins
Serves
6

INGREDIENTS

Pastry

1 1/3 cup (200g) plain flour

90g icing sugar

90g unsalted butter, diced

1 egg

1 tbsp cold water (optional)

Lemon Curd Filling

4 eggs

1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar

300ml cream

300ml lemon juice (2–3 lemons)

METHOD

1. For the pastry: put the flour and icing sugar into a food processor and very briefly combine. Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg. When the dough balls together and clings around blade, stop. If this doesn’t happen add a little chilled water until it does. Remove, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour or overnight.

2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board and line a high sided 24.5cm flan tin. Press gently into tin and use rolling pin to trim the excess from the perimeter. Prick all over with a fork, including the sides. Place in freezer for at least 15 minutes or until frozen (again overnight is fine). Place in preheated 200°C oven (180ºC fan-forced) and cook for 10–15 minutes until golden brown.

3. For the filling: reduce oven temperature to 170°C. Beat together the eggs and caster sugar until pale. Pour in the cream and finally, the juice. Pour immediately into the prepared pastry base and bake until just set, about 25–30 minutes.

4. Dredge with icing sugar and serve with whipped or thick cream.

Lyndey’s note: this is also delicious with lime juice. You will need about 7 limes.

Impress: Poh Ling Yeow
Words by Mark Hughes on 14 Jun 2017
It is so easy to fall in love with Poh Ling Yeow. She's wildly attractive, intelligent, funny and vivacious. She has a dazzling charisma, but at the same time is approachable. And she’s oh so talented. A professional artist before starring on the first season of Masterchef, she is now a true celebrity of the Australian food scene and host of her own show, Poh & Co., on SBS. “It’s really lovely to be back on a second season of Poh & Co. and working with friends and family, because ultimately that’s where I get all my inspiration from,” Poh tells me when we sit down for a chat on the set of our Impress photoshoot. “It’s a very truthful depiction of how I draw my ideas, the kind of everyday influences that I have and the people that I come in contact with. “The thing that I love about the show most is that it touches on very common, suburban aspirations, you know, wanting to have a vege patch or build your own pizza oven. It’s got currency in terms of people being able to relate to it very easily.” Working on TV and being able to chat with people from all walks of life has also benefitted Poh in the fact that she has been able to feel more secure about her own food identity. “I used to be very purist about the way I cooked, but now I’m relaxing and understanding what my identity is, which is a Malaysian-born Chinese Australian. So I feel like my food should absolutely reflect that. “Now I feel I have this license to be a little bit more free and playful with my food and it absolutely reflects what food is all about. It’s all about multiculture, about mixing ingredients and techniques.” The other exciting development in Poh’s life is opening her first restaurant, Jamface, in Adelaide’s Central Markets. “It’s actually just a little café – a very casual place. I’m cooking light breakfasts and lunches. The main focus is actually my pastry. I’m well known for my Asian food, but the thing that I absolutely love is French pastry. You should come down and check it out.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Poh:
