The l6th Arrondissement has always been a retreat for the wealthy. It’s the largest arrondissement in Paris and is filled with the most marvelous markets. It is here the opulent President Wilson market sets up twice a week. Lavish stands of game, meat, cheese, fish and flowers beguile you at every turn. Daughter and I did not know where to look first … at the market stalls or at the shoppers. Watching the elegant Parisian woman shopping for tempting delicacies was an experience in itself.
Observing how they tied their scarves my daughter and I immediately retied our Hermes scarves. The double knot that insured your scarf would not slip off. We wanted to be elegant Parisians shopping for this evenings dinner.
This recipe for TARTE AU CITRON is at once so rich and lemony it puts all other lemon pies and tarts in the shade. Make it and you’ll bring Paris home and into your kitchen.
