Tarte Tatin for Titan’s Supper Club

 I have been wanting to tackle a Tarte Tatin again ever since my first attempt last year, and thanks to Titan Travel’s Supper Club, I have the opportunity. When I was asked to take part,  I jumped at the chance when I saw the recipe was by Brendan Lynch – a finalist – and my favourite contestant – in last year’s Great British Bake Off. Titan also kindly sent me a gift card to cover the cost of the ingredients.

Apricot Ginger Jam for #SundaySupper

Aromatic Glazed Salmon for #SundaySupper

A traditional celebration for the end of summer (and Labor Day weekend in the US) should be a good BBQ. A garden full of sunshine, friends, cold cider and the anticipation of the food sizzling on the grill. With Family Foodie hosting a huge #SundaySupper cookout, the pressure was on to find a delightful al fresco dish.
