Before I didn’t like the fennel, but that was before… remember, I was telling you all that early this year, when I proposed you to call the recipe of the salad of winter, fennel, arugula, and feta cheese. But before this tarte tatin, I had never thought of fennel cooked, but I was wrong to not think about it before. I don’t know if the fennel is cooked you are talking about (not true, huh ?!) but in fact maybe yes, because it is usually like that that everybody knows about it the better. Anyway, if you do not know, wait and see I you the this today… it is so tart tatin of onions and fennel on the menu, a recipe for tarte tatin salted you will not be able to pass you (if if I assure you !).

So here is the fennel is cooked, caramelized to perfection, accompanied by red onion and a good pinch of Espelette pepper. All in a tarte tatin, which I hope you will like it as much as us !
