Recipe: Apple Tart ‘Maman Blanc’
…no, me either. But this tart sure looked lovely when I saw Raymond Blanc making it on his most recent series, ‘Raymond Blanc’s Kitchen Secrets.’
What I enjoy most about this programme, yeah, maybe even more than the presence of desserts served in their own edible chocolate or praline bowls, is the top-notch glowering of Raymond’s world-weary assistant, Adam. He seriously looks like every time he is asked to plug something in, or to get a bigger whisk, he is quietly plotting Monsieur Blanc’s demise. I just hopes he reaches breaking point when the cameras are still rolling.
Anyway, schadenfreude aside, this tart is delicious! As made by the famous Maman Blanc, the pastry is beautifully crisp and the apples soft and buttery. A welcome departure from our usual tarte tatin. Give it a try!
