For the Chef’s Table dinner that I was so very fortunate to recently attend, Chef Matt Beach prepared simply the most delicious apple tarte Tatin you could possibly imagine.
A tarte Tatin is a tart cooked upside down and made with fruit (typically apples) that have been caramelized in butter and sugar prior to baking. The recipe originates from the Centre Region of France, a rich agricultural area where many tree fruits are grown. Peaches, plums, pears, and apricots may also be used to make the tarte.
Warm and ready to serve
