It is nearly the end of the season the endives, then we take the past to make a wonderful tarte tatin of endive with goat cheese and honey. This recipe I got hold of a friend that we had made this pie during the holidays, to get back in the softness of our evening of 31 December. I have to say that I was very very excited and it is a beautiful discovery to make without restraint !

In addition, I really love this kind of recipe, are normally sweet, and we pass them in salty (or vice versa) that I just wanted to do it again this tarte tatin of endive with goat cheese and honey. Also, I think I’m going to explore other versions with the new vegetables that are beginning to happen… In the same style and at the beginning of the blog, I had made a crumble with tomato, absolutely delicious.

I must confess to you that it is Fab that made the shortbread dough to the pie because I don’t like to put hands in there, and it was particularly successful ! It should be recognized that the dough did a lot in the rendering of the recipe.
