  3. For the lemon namelaka cream I used recipe by Gianluca Fusto. Prepare this refreshing lemon namelaka cream the night before. Soak the gelatin sheets in cold water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt white chocolate over water bath. Heat the milk and water almost to the boiling point, turn off the heat, add squeezed gelatin and mix well. Using the immersion blender blend the milk gradually adding melted white chocolate. Add cold cream and blend again (try to incorporate as little air as possible). Finally add the lemon juice and zest and blend again until the whole is smooth and homogeneous. Cover the container with the transparent film and place the lemon nemalake in the refrigerator until it solidifies, for a minimum of 8 hours or, better, overnight.

  4. The next morning roll out the pastry dough to a thickness of 5 mm. Cut out a circle 20 cm wide using the base of the round pan as the guide and move the pastry on the pan (previously lightly greased and floured). Use the advanced pastry to create a long cylinder/strip. Place the cylinder on the pastry and press it gently to make it adhere perfectly. Finally, make personalized decorations. I used the tip of the spatula. Brush the middle of the pastry with a spoonful of marmelade. Prick the bottom with a fork and bake in a preheated static oven at 170 °C for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely.

  5. Decorate your tart with lemon namelaka cream using the piping bag or simply spreading it evenly on top. Add season fruit to taste and serve. Store in the refrigerator.
