It All Starts with an Apple Tart

FCI California's Jaques Torres Inaugrual Classic Pastry Arts Class make their first tart!

A simple apple compote, a pâte brisée crust, a layer of thinly sliced apples, and a light coat of apricot nappage, and you have completed your first two days in The FCI's pastry course. As delicious as the other tarts are (chocolate ganache, banana cream, fresh fruit, caramel nut...), something about making your first tart makes it taste the very best.
