Didn't get to try this after cooking as I made it to take to a BBQ - but the whole thing went very quickly and received lots of praise so it must have been good! Served with single cream.

Would also like to know what temperature to reduce to? I'd rather not waste time and effort through elimination!

This is a great recipe, despite my less than perfect execution it turned out wonderfully. Looks beautiful and is really tasty - I'm a big fan of a quality lemon tart so I'm very happy. Thanks Mitrajam.
