  • Make this Tarte Tatin tonight!

    Tarte Tatin can be described as a French upside-down apple tart. This mouthwatering dessert was created by accident at the Hotel Tatin in Lamotte-Beuvron in 1898. But it didn't become popular until the famed Maxim’s Restaurant put it on their menu.

    According to historians, Maxim's owner Louis Vaudable decided he must have the recipe after tasting the tart on a visit to Sologne. The story suggests that he sent a cook/spy disguised as a gardener to Lamotte-Beuvron to discover the secret.
