Story of the popular Tarte Tatin

The typical French tarte Tatin is a wonderful combination of flaky pastry - generally homemade for more authenticity - and smooth, caramelised apples. This traditional upside-down apple tart from the Centre region of France actually results from the "Soeurs Tatin" or "Demoiselles Tatin"'s imagination.

Indeed, running a charming hotel in the Loire Valley region, Stéphanie and Caroline Tatin had to prepare some delightful dishes for their guests.

The tradition relates that one day, around 1898, Stéphanie - who would take care of the cooking and especially of her traditional apple pie, was so overwhelmed that she left the fruits in the pan, simmering for too long. Blended with sugar and butter, the apples formed a sweet, caramelised mixture that the young cook finally poured in a pastry pan, covered with her delicate flaky pastry and over baked. 

Once out of the oven, the upside-down tart was turned out on an elegant tray, resulting - to the Tatin sisters' great surprise - in a really appetizing dessert. The apple pie was then delivered to the guests, who finally highly appreciated it: the classic tarte Tatin was born!

Tip of the Month...


Making the perfect Millefeuille can be a challenge and difficult to cut through. After all your hard work, the last thing you want is crooked edges to your fine patisserie! 

Why not try freezing it for about an hour, then dividing it with a very sharp knife. Alternatively, you can cut the puff pastry into individual portions beforehand and then assemble it.
