Tarte Tatin - it's an inverted apple pie,which, thanks to the French confectioners, became a legend and one of the most famous French national dessert, although preparing pretty simple.
I have the impression that just applesdesigned to be tasty filling for a variety of baking (for example, check out this recipe for apple pie in the oven, or this one). And today's recipe, which I offer you, once again proves it. Moreover, this year is already ripe apples, rich in taste and aroma. So take advantage of this opportunity is essential.
As for the cake, his story - a vivid example of how people are able to turn the supposedly inevitable fiasco in brilliant victory.
Legend has it that the recipe for the pie tartTatin appeared accidental. It was first prepared in 1880 at the "Tatin" in the town of Lamotte-Beuvron, which lies 160 km south of Paris. The hotel was run by two sisters, Stéphanie and Caroline Tatin. It Stefania, which for the most part prepared for the guests of the hotel, is the author of the famous French apple pie.
One day, she began to doTraditional apple pie, but being too busy working, leaving the apples with butter and sugar languish too long. The poor woman just forgot about them, and remembered only when I felt the smell of burn in the pan of apples. Trying to save the dish, she quickly covered caramelized apples test and put the pan in the oven. After the finished cake was overturned on a dish, she was surprised to find that scorched the apples with the sugar found a unique aroma and flavor, and the hotel guests appreciated the dessert.
Tart Tatin was the signature dish of the hotel. Although the sisters did not set a goal to create a "signature dish", they never wrote cookbooks and never published his recipe (they do not even call it Tarte Tatin), the cake was destined to become famous.
This simple tart apples just overgrownlegends. One of them says that the owner of the famous Paris restaurant "Maxim" Vodable Louis used to hunt in the vicinity of the town of Lamotte-Beuvron. Once he found a small hotel run by two elderly ladies, where he was handed a wonderful dessert, the taste of which he had just slain. The famous restaurateur tried to find Tatin pie recipe in the kitchen but places him in this was refused.
Then the restless Louis Vodable hired the sisters inas a gardener. And though after he was fired three days (when it became clear that the "gardener" could barely put cabbage), that it was enough to penetrate the secrets of the kitchen. Restaurateur brought the recipe to Paris and began to prepare the cake in the restaurant "Maxim" called "Tarte Tatin Mademoiselle."
In fact, Mr. Vodable was born in 1902year, the owners of "Maxim" Vodable family began in 1932, and the Tatin sisters sold their business in 1906, and died in 1911 and 1917. Nevertheless, such a beautiful legend persists, and many believe its true. And all because the Tarte Tatin - a really great cake, very tasty and popular in many countries already.
I think that these stories will inspire you in your own victory, and in the meantime let's start cooking.
