Where oh where is the best tarte tatin in Paris? Every time I go, I eat a different tarte tatin and have a list of my favourite destinations for it but I wonder if I’m missing something amazing.
So, this post is really to ask you, dear readers and fellow patisserie consumers, where might I find the very best tarte tatin in the city?
I have to say, I’m not fussy about the type of business selling it – could be a café, a restaurant, a bakery… What I need is a delicious layer of golden caramelised apples (none of this pear tatin madness – I’m a tatin traditionalist) and a crispy buttery pastry base. Preferably served hot with some nice vanilla ice cream but that’s a bonus. It’s all about the tarte.
My current three faves (in no particular order) are:
- Le Centenaire – Boulevard de la Tour Maubourg
- Le Bosquet – Avenue Bosquet
Fellow blogger, necessities123 has recommended Le Passy which I am planning on trying out next weekend. But where else is there?
If you’ve had one that you’ve really enjoyed, can you let me know in the comments so that I can add it to my list…
Thanking you most hungrily. Andrew James
