If you have eaten in L'Estrade in the village you are sure to have tasted their Tarte Tatin made daily by Anne Laurence.
For my 50th birthday (now last year) the girls bought me a copper 'moule' the dish needed to make a tarte, together with the promise of showing me how to make one. And we finally got round to organising the lesson this week.
in the pan, brought gently to the boil with lots of butter and sugar, then simmer.............
to bring a lovely aroma and colour and the layer of caramel begins to form, this is the most difficult part!
Anne Lo applies the home made pastry
Looking pensive - the pressure is mounting!
pretty good result for the first attempt

Taking advantage of the December sunshine we took walk No 4 in the Saint Saturnin guide, from the village heading South west to the Perreal. Walking past one of our favourite houses.
After climbing to about 473 metres we enjoyed spectacular views towards the Petit Luberon
Coming around `our side of the valley` looking towards the Mont du Vaucluse, the mountains behind us,
This charming cabanon enjoys a wonderful view.
On return we enjoy the winter sun with a glass of Provencal rose - what else!
