We will be celebrating a birthday this weekend up at Avila Beach and SB area. The birthday girl loves apple tarte tatin and I was hoping someone could tell us if it is on any good restaurant menu or if any bakery makes it.
I have yet to find a good tarte tatin that has a crunchy base while perfecting all the rest of the layers at the same time. Mainly it all comes out mushy. Best so far has been Downey's in Santa Barbara. They do an exceptionally good job with desserts and apparently are assembled off site. Give them a call.
