Some photos from Week 4

Tarte Tatin with whipped cream
Tarte Tatin is classic French tart that got its name when two sisters (Caroline and Stephanie Tatin) were working in their restaurant toward the end of the 19th century. The restaurant is still there today (in the Loir). At the time it was known as a restaurant frequented by hungry hunters and one evening while they were waiting for the hunters to come in for dinner, Stephanie burned the apple tart. Instead of throwing it out she turned it upside down and cooked it some more. The apples became completely caramelized and it was (and still is) a big hit!
