The idea?

I wanted to keep the authenticity of the product but reworking the textures.

The shape?

Keeping the lemon half confit for the shininess and to really have the impression of eating a lemon.

The flavours?

Keeping the lemon flavours ; parfait, sorbet, meringue.

The technical step?

To make the parfait isn’t difficult. This is a dessert which is both easy and original. Make sure to use lemon juice to keep the flavours.
