Looking for dessert ideas to cook with your Gozney this summer? Try this delicious Tarte Tatin by the legendary Thomas Straker.
1 roll of puff pastry
4 Granny Smith apples
1 sprig of thyme
1 large quenelle of butter
3 tbsp Water
½ tsp vanilla bean paste
Roughly peel and de-core the apples. Cut into quarters.
Create a caramel by adding sugar and water to a pan on the hob and letting it bubble. You’re looking to achieve a dark caramel colour. Spoon in the butter, and add the apples.
Allow the apples to cook down for around 15-20 minutes slowly until dark and golden.
Layer up the apples in a cast-iron pan, and pour in some of the caramel.
Roll out a sheet of puff pastry, and cut out a ‘lid’ that fits on top of the cast iron pan and covers the apples. Crimp the edges down.
Place in the Gozney Dome using embers, at around 300°C/570°F for around 20 minutes.
Whilst the Tarte Tatin is cooking, whisk the double cream with a spoon of icing sugar, until thick.
Remove the Tarte Tatin from the oven and turn it over on a plate.
Finish with a sprig of fresh thyme and a scoop of whipped cream. Serve and enjoy!
