    They just love a tarte tatin on MasterChef and we do too. Judge Gregg Wallace shows us how it's done with his favourite classic apple dessert recipe that's not as hard to do as you might think.

If you can get your hands on an all butter version then it's the best option as it'll taste really decadent and authentic - the French wouldn't have it any other way! You can swap the apples for pears if you fancy trying something different or you could add blackberries to the mix for a seasonal treat. Whatever you do make sure to serve your tarte tatin with plenty of clotted cream or ice cream - delicious.
