The tarte tatin, a classic of French cuisine

The tarte tatin is a classic of French cuisine. Its particularity: this tarte is baked upside down, that is to say that the filling is placed under the pastry. After baking, you just need a good hand to turn the tarte over in one go! Fruits or vegetables are stewed in this way, which gives them a melting texture while preserving their aromas as much as possible.

Traditionally made with apples, the tarte tatin can be made with all types of fruit, including peaches, apricots and pears. As for the savoury version, tatin goes particularly well with summer vegetables such as courgettes, aubergines, tomatoes or peppers.

Shortcrust pastry with thyme

Although many tarte tatin recipes use puff pastry, it is traditionally made with shortcrust pastry. Shortcrust pastry is easier to hold than puff pastry and will be easier to turn.

For this recipe, I chose a homemade shortcrust pastry that I flavored with fresh thyme. If you don’t have the time, you can buy your own ready-made shortcrust pastry. Note that you can freeze your shortcrust pastry (uncooked). This is a good trick when you want to cook as much as possible yourself while working during the week! Just remember to take it out of the freezer in the morning and put it in the fridge during the day.

Ingredients

  • 230 g flour
  • 1 egg
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 40 ml of water
  • 4 g of salt
  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
