Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
An exaltation of apples
Zester Daily - 9/15/2010.
By Nancy Harmon Jenkins – Tarte Tatin was invented, so we are told, late in the 19th century by one of the two Tatin sisters, les demoiselles Tatin, who kept a restaurant, the Hotel-Terminus Tatin, in the Loire valley town of Lamotte-Beuvron.
