Tarte Tatin is an upside-down apple tart in which the apples are caramelized in butter and sugar before the tart is baked.
Tradition says that the Tarte Tatin was first created by accident at the Hotel Tatin in Lamotte-Beuvron, France, in 1898. The hotel was run by two sisters, Stéphanie and Caroline Tatin.
But who cares about the origin if it’s simply the richest type of apple pie on earth. It’s famous all over the world, and it can be made with a zillion variations.
I’ve found a great recipe from BBC Food that I tried the other day with my own apples harvested from the mill’s orchard. 🙂
