No, not the same old!
This time, I deliver:
Viennese Mélange for all!

Lemon Meringue Tartlette
with Red Currants

Pastry chef Pierre Reboul's
heavenly temptation

Viennese Mélange
with Lemon Meringue Tartlette

Viennese Mélange
as served at Café Central
on a silvery tray with a
spoon-topped glass of water
and red-foil-wrapped chocolate nougat

Somebody could not wait
any longer and dug in,
with a cake fork, that is!


I dedicate this blog post
to Stephanie Levy,
who recently visited Vienna

and discovered Pierre Reboul's
fabulous lemon tartlette, tempting me with these words:
"This little lemon tart was one of the most beautiful things I have ever eaten. Sweet, citrusy, creamy filling with a crunchy base. My taste buds were in heaven. I honestly felt emotional about this tart - it was that good. Viennese pastry chefs are true artisans."

Who am I to resist? ;-)

  1. Ummmm....yummmm....what more can I say?
    I can feel the calories just looking at it.

  2. I couldn't resist either!

  3. I just finished my dinner and don't have any desert. This will do nicely. Thank you :-).

  4. I could NEVER resist your photo of that tarte!
    nor the down-turned spooner...

  5. Ah, to sit, to sip, to dig in and do it again the next time I come here. Great temptations, Merisi.

  6. Ah too many choices! Diglas, Central, Hawelka...I need a few more years to get around all these lovely places.
    Um feel a real craving for Esterhazytorte.
    Thanks for these wonderful posts Merisi. Yummy !

    love to share! :-)

    I had lunch at Diglas today and no dessert.
    It is 10PM now, and I regret not having chosen a dessert. ;-)

    Paris Breakfasts,

    I have been away from Vienna for several weeks and I felt like a kid in a candy store upon returning. So many choices, so little time, isn't it?

  8. This tartelette looks great! My mouth is watering...

  9. Viennese Girl Vreni,
