Tarte Tatin – A Pretty Spin on the French Classic

Tarte Tatin – A Pretty Spin on the French Classic

Remember this post when I wrote about our brilliant lunch date at Roganic in London? Well, I stand by what I said in this post. Their apple dessert was beyond delicious and I’m still dreaming about that incredible Tarte Tatin. I simply had to try it myself. But before I was able to recreate this dish, I had to get a new kitchen gadget: a Japanese vegetable slicer or, in my case, a very fancy apple slicer that creates the thinnest sheets ever. And then I just had to find a recipe… cue William Lamagnère.

Method

  1. First, make the caramel: In a pan, heat the sugar and stir until it’s completely melted and has that lovely auburn colour. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter. Pour the caramel in your Tarte Tartin mould. Add the olive oil on top and set it aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 160C.
  3. Then, slice the apples into long, thin ribbons. Once done, shape all the apple sheets into a roll.
  4. Carefully transfer your apple roll into your mould.
  5. Drizzle the apple roll with olive oil and bake for 45 minutes.
  6. After 45 minutes cover the apple roll and let it bake for another 45 minutes, then let it cool at room temperature.
  7. In the meantime, cut the puff pastry sheet into the form and size of your mould and bake according to the instructions.
  8. Finally, put the caramelised apple sheets on top of the pastry.
  9. Serve this beautiful tarte with whipped cream or white chocolate mousse.
  10. Enjoy!
