Recipe: Tropical Tarte Tatin

With the weather cold and chilly at this time of the year (yes, even on the Sunshine Coast!), this dish will add a bit of summer to your winter table.  Tarte Tatin is an upside-down tart, made most commonly with apples, where the fruit is caramelised in sugar and butter prior to baking.

Pineapples are gorgeous in a salsa, and marry really well with fresh chilli and mint.
