The ULTIMATE Lemon Meringue Tart Battle!

  • Published on Oct 28, 2018
  • The ULTIMATE Lemon Tart SHOULD have a crisp pastry base, tangy lemon filling, a thin layer of raspberry jelly, and a soft, creamy meringue topping.
    If they try REALLY hard, the guys might get at least one of the components right (?!)

    Do you agree? Well, fine, but that mint should NOT be anywhere near that. The only one with the mint in the center, so it can be removed, sure. I would be upset with the grass clippings texture on top of that beautiful meringue. Still a fun video as always guys.

    I feel like Jamie cheated a bit by making everything smaller and his pastry was super messy on the edges, but if Barry's was in fact underbaked, I guess Jamie would have had to be the winner. Btw, the audio on your videos is often really rough, with numerous inaudible parts...just fyi. The music is almost always too loud for the talking. I'm constantly having to replay parts and readjust my volume...

    That's awesome that even though there looked to be some major issues along the way, all 3 of them turned out. I got a little bit of anxiety for a moment there. With my personal experience baking, it's usually pretty relaxing, and the actual baking time is cooldown time; that was definitely not the case here haha
    I don't even know what tarts taste like, but I'm really curious to try one now.

  • Neelanjana Vinod

    I actually understood what Barry was trying to say about it not being too lemony. What he was trying to say was that no matter how much lemon you add, it won't be too sour.

    Wow, Jamie did good in this one! He struck with the recipe, and used a hack's method to adjust for the time shortage. I think he might not be so good at normal cooking challenges, but since he is always hard-pressed for a challenge (mostly created by himself), he can think his way out and not panic.

    I picked Jamie's tart prior to the judgment call. Friends watching this with me disagreed. I put down five dollars American, and I walked away with 15 dollars! Thank you, Jamie! On another note, you guys should come to America are a couple of times, but I don't believe that you have been to Boston, Massachusetts. We have very fine chefs and restaurants throughout the area, especially in the section known as the South End. One of the streets has been nicknamed "Restaurant Row". South Boston has extraordinary and old restaurants. In the Faneuil Hall area we have the oldest existing restaurant in the United States, the Union Oyster House. Then there is our famous North End, boston's Italian neighborhood. The cuisine in this section of town is to die for! We also have an Asian district that is still called Chinatown. Wonderful regional food from all over China is served here in the better restaurants. Please come and showcase my city! PS: I live in Quincy, Massachusetts now, but it's just a short distance away from Boston.
