Lemon Black Bottom Pie At Four & Twenty Blackbirds

Yes, it’s time for another 4 & 20 blackbirds post. The Lemon Black Bottom pie was one I’d never had before; a lemon custard with a thin layer of chocolate underneath. Lemon ans chocolate is not a combination I’m familiar with, but it worked really well. The sharp lemon and the sweet, smooth chocolate flavor complemented each other nicely. During the dead of winter it can be tough to come up with seasonal fruit for the bakers at 4 & 20 to make pies out of, but they seem to be making the most of citrus; I also had a slice of a grapefruit custard pie which tasted almost unnervingly of fresh grapefruit.

    Wow, the Lemon Black Bottom pie sounds great. I’ve been wanting to make one ever since I saw recipe for a similar tart in “Sunday Suppers at Lucques.” Now I won’t have to.
