A little bit of French culture: How was the Tatin pie born?
Tatin pie is a caramelized apple pie, the dough is placed above the apples. After baking, the pie is spilled on a plate and served warm. There are several legends to explain the invention of the Tatin pie. The one I prefer is the following: at the end of the 19th century, in Sologne (a French region with lots of woods that attracts hunters), there was a restaurant that was very popular: the restaurant of the Tatin Sisters. One day there came far too many customers. This caused a lot of stress. In the rush, one of the sisters made an apple pie by first putting the apples in the baking pan instead of the dough. When the dessert was cooked, she realized her blunder and turned the pie over on a plate. And the dessert was very successful.
