How to get the best results from your Tarte Tatin set

You can use your Emile Henry Tarte Tatin set to bake delicious tarts, starting on the stove top and finishing in the oven.

Preparation and cooking

Pre-heat your Tatin dish on a very low heat for two minutes (the lowest possible). Do not exceed this time if possible.

For a sweet tart, pour in the sugar, spreading it out over the surface of the pre-heated dish. The caramel will gradually form. Do not use a spoon, hold your dish by the handles and spread out the sugar using circular movements.

When the caramel is ready, take the dish off the heat and add the filling (apples for traditional Tarte Tatin). Then place the pastry on the top. The diameter of the dish is designed for the ready-made puff pastry and shortcrust pastry you can find in the shops.

The Tarte Tatin is completely cooked after cooking a second time in a preheated oven.

After taking your Tarte Tatin out of the oven, leave to cool for 10 minutes.

Place the serving platter on top of the dish and turn out the tart. To do this, hold the handles and the serving platter at the same time. Turn it towards you in one quick movement, and remove the dish to reveal your tart.

Instruction for use

Before using it for the first time, remove all the labels from the product, if necessary using a mild detergent, then clean carefully.

Your set contains two pieces: the dish you will bake in and the serving platter used to turn your tart out after cooking and serve it on the table.

The serving platter cannot be used directly on the stove top. Do not place it in contact with a source of direct heat. You can, however, use it in the oven to warm up your tart if necessary.

Always use a low heat for the first five minutes so that the temperature builds up gradually.

Do not heat the empty Tatin dish for more than two minutes, and always use a very gentle heat.

Cook on the burner most appropriate to the size of the dish (usually the largest one).

Thanks to its highly resistant glaze, you can use metal utensils when cooking, without scratching the surface.

When the dish is hot, do not place it in contact with anything cold, such as cold water or a cold surface. When you take it out of the oven, place it on a neutral surface, such as a wooden board or cloth.

If, when cleaning it, you find that some residue will not come off, soak it in hot water and white vinegar before placing in the dishwasher.
