Apple Tarte Tatin — Was It Really an Accident or is there a Different Story?

3 versions of the famous tarte

Tarte Tatin has been very popular worldwide ever since its inception in the 1800s. The familiar story often retold is that of the Tatin family and their hotel in the small town of Lamotte-Beuvron in Central France, about 100 miles south of Paris. Jean Tatin opened l’Hotel Tatin in the 1800s. In 1888, his two daughters Caroline and Stéphanie (Fanny) took over the hotel after he passed away.
