Lulu’s Tarte Tatin aux Poires

It started as a kind of joke – I was asked to make a tortilla for New Year’s Eve and thought tortilla followed by tarte tatin sounded like a bit of a mouthful.  As usual, curiosity got the better of me…


Lots of butter, and much less sugar than any of the recipes suggested.  Add a split vanilla pod…


I decided to go for pears this time… and am now desperate to try green, yellow, red and stripy heirloom tomatoes…


Wrap them in a blanket of pastry, and into the oven they go…


…til golden brown.  Et voilà – my first attempt!
