pear tarte tatin recipe


Just in time for the holidays...Pear Tarte Tatin


A tarte tatin is basically an upside-down pie. Showcasing the cello-like pears instead of the more traditional apples gives this French classic just the tiniest bit of haughty edge. The recipe appears in this month's GRID magazine, chock-full of recipes and of eco-inspiring articles. You can find hard copies free at businesses throughout the greater Philadelphia region. Or access the recipe and magazine online.

If the idea of quickly flipping over a pan to reveal a dramatic, all-in-one-piece tarte terrifies you, take heart. It's like riding a bike: do it once and you'll never forget how. Just follow the directions precisely and be confident.

Tarte tatin sounds so much more chic than upside down pie ;) Great recipe!

I was planning on making your cranberry upside down cake for christmas, but this picture is making me re-think my decision...

Looks beautiful!

Apparently my boyfriend's boss's wife does your hair. They threw a holiday party for the employees and she made a lot of vegan food, including two of your recipes... I think a paella and a caramel cheesecake. They were SO GOOD! It was amazing. I don't think anyone but me was vegan and everyone loved them! Just thought I'd share.

That looks lovely! I think I like cooked pears a lot better than raw, so I'll have to try this recipe out!

Jackie said...

Looks great. I don't eat many pears as I prefer tropical fruits but maybe trying them this way I might.

Gorgeous tarte tatin!

Nicole said...

Lovely!

So, I recently got your book as an early Christmas gift and am so excited to get cooking from it! I can't choose what to make first so I thought I'd ask you, what are the first things you would make if you were me?

Nicole: Make the Spaghetti Carbonara. I just had it last night and it was awesome. I added a thinly sliced red onio which I think took it to another level.

For dessert, make the Tira Mi Su or Chocolate Mousse. Let me know how you like them!

I observed that the majority, if not all, in the african-american college students at my higher education commencement wore a specific kind of stole. I did a a number of study and observed out that its called a Kente stole. Nonetheless, I was wondering if any you knew the historical background and objective with the stole? Also, do graduates buy the stole for on their own or is it offered by the Workplace of Minority Student Affairs? I was baffled as towards the history, goal, and distribution from the stole due to the fact I noticed from my friend's current 2010 graduation, that just about everyone also had on the similar Kente stole, including non-minority professors and students. Can anybody inform me far more about the Kente stole?
