Tarte Tatin is an “upside-down Apple Tarte” which was born in a small hotel in the French region called Sologne by accident. The hotel was run by two sisters, Stéphanie Tatin and Caroline Tatin.
Stéphanie who did most of the cooking, was too tired and forgot the apples cooking in butter and sugar for too long, smelling the burning she tried to hide it by putting the pastry base on the top of the pan of apples and put it back in the oven to finish the cooking. When ready she turned it upside-down and to her great surprise all the hotel guests loved it. It became their signature dish and was name forvever Tarte Tatin.
In 1926, famous French gourmet Curnonsky recommended this dessert to Paris. The Tatin family, it is always remembered by the world because of this accidental negligence.
