Chris and Jeff Galvin will bring the Apple Tarte Tatin Challenge to this year’s Dubai Food Festival.

An annually celebrated occasion in London, the Apple Tarte Tatin Challenge has gained a large following over the last decade.

Chris Galvin said in a statement: “Jeff and I have always loved apple pies and tarte Tatin is always on our menu. It is also a great test for any chef — you give them the same ingredients and they make it in pretty much the same way, yet you get 10 different pies.”

During the first week of DFF at 7:00pm on February 26, baking enthusiasts are invited to witness Galvin Dubai’s executive chef Luigi Vespero, demonstrating the creation process of the signature Galvin Apple Tarte Tatin dish at the Beach Canteen.

A social media competition is being launched where amateur cooks will re-create their own tart according to the Galvin recipe and post the final product on their social media pages using the tag #GalvinDubaiAppleTatin.

Vespero, pastry chef Ryan Harris and the Galvin brothers will shortlist ten finalists, who will be invited to join the team at Galvin Dubai. The winner will be crowned the Galvin Tarte Tatin 2018 Champion and rewarded with a prize.
