As French as 'la tarte Tatin'
Waldoboro — The expression goes: "As American as apple pie," but second year French students at Medomak Valley High School in Waldoboro might say: "As French as la tarte Tatin."
Students in second-year Honors and College Preparatory classes prepared la tarte Tatin, a classic French dessert similar to apple pie. The students researched the history of the dessert, translated the recipe for the tart into English, and learned vocabulary related to cooking.
They prepared — and ate — the dessert with much enthusiasm.
