Tarte Tatin, A Confused Apple Pie. The upside-down apple tart is quintessentially french, but the tiny village of Lamotte Beuvron claims to his invention, where the Tatin sisters pulled it from theur oven. While racing to get through a busy lunch service Stéphanie threw a pan of apple, suger and butter in the oven, thinking there was the pastry on the bottom. Rather than admit a mistake, the sisters flipped over their tart, added a pastry lid and putted it back to the oven.

That's the official story, versus the legend which tells that an apple tarte was upturned on the floor by mistake...
