Cider is not the prerogative of Normandy and Brittany. Located between Sens and Troyes, the Pays d’Othe also produces a delicious tangy nectar. In the top-of-the-range bakery and pastry shop “Tonton Farine” named after its chef, cider even enhances the desserts.
Pastry chef Antoine Legay offers us a revisited basic of French cuisine: a recipe for apple compote and salted butter caramel. “Through this dessert, I wanted to honor our local producer”, explains this chef committed to an ecological approach.
So he quite naturally enhanced his cider compote: “The cider from the Pays d’Othe brings roundness and pep to this recipe.“. Used as a garnish in a puff pastry with cider jelly, this gourmet apple compote can be made in no time to accompany your desserts.
