As I’ve shared before, hosting dinner parties is one of my favorite things to do – they are enhancers of life for me. When hosting dinner parties, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the food prep and forget the real reason you’re there, which is to spend times with loved ones.
Over the years, I’ve learned that one of the keys to a successful dinner party is finding menu items that my guests will enjoy, but won’t require so much attention that I can’t enjoy myself too. One dessert I’ve discovered that fits that bill is this delicious pear tarte tatin. It’s super easy to prepare, beautiful when finished and always a party pleaser!
A few years ago I taught a class at my sister’s cooking school, The Farm School on Los Rios, and showed the participants how to make both my apple pie (you might remember this blog about that) and this delicious tarte tatin. So once again, I’m sharing video from that class so you can see for yourself just how simple it is.
