According to what I can find, immediately, on the web, today’s specialty item, the Tarte Tatin, is a pastry or cake baked over caramelized fruit. However, I keep coming across scrumptious recipes for savory versions that feature caramelized endives. I found quite a few endives (or chicory) on the discount rack this week and cannot resist trying out a variation on this marvelous concept. The Tarte Tatin has a quaint history. It was created bytwo sisters who ran an inn in France, long ago
