Lemon tarts for Mosaic Monday

This year I have been exploring food photography, and along the way I have been inspired by many wonderful food photographers on the web that I have found through Mosaic Monday and Flickr. I have learnt so much from these photographers.  Thank you also to Dario in Sydney for his food photography blog and critiques at - Food Pixels.com

So, with thanks to one of my favourite "foodies" - "Tartelette" for the recipe (and her amazing book on food photography - From Plate to Pixels - here is her link - Tartelette) here are lemon tarts I made last Thursday for my Dad for his birthday dinner.  First I had to go to the shop to by the little tart tins.

The pastry is a sweet short crust pasty (the most fiddly bit), with a simple lemon filling, with lemons straight from my lemon tree. I have never made this lemon tart before - they were delicious. 

and some beautiful yellow daisies from my garden. They are guaranteed to flower just about all year round.  In a cute little jug I brought recently from a garden shop.

I hope you have enjoyed my exploration of the lemon tart. I am linking up to Mosaic Monday - to see the work of Mary of other wonderful contributors - please click on the link here - Mosaic Monday at Little Red House


  1. I think you have mastered the art of food photography! This post makes my mouth water, my lips pucker and my heart smile. Just pure delight!

  2. Your images are spectacular! I can taste the lemon! I am not a photographer and admire great photos. I need to sit down and learn about my camera. I also took photos of our wild flowers this week end that i posted on my Cape Town Blog called www.mothercitymagic.blogspot.com and as you will se I need to learn loads. I just aim and shoot at this stage but will need to get to know my camera! Your images of flowers are gorgeous!


  3. Gorgeous, mouthwatering! I love the shot with tart, glass and jug. So summery. :) My little lemon tree is struggling to grow, but I hope one day I can harvest enough fruit to make tarts and lemonade.

  4. I am trying to figure out how I can pick up one of your lemon tarts from my laptop screen. They look delicious, so beautifully presented!
