A variant of the classic and ever-popular tarte tatin, Catherine serves this as a starter rather than a dessert because it is a savoury-sweet tart. We must point out that she has a ready supply of wild boar at home and that figs are grown in Alsace. An excellent autumn recipe (Catherine and Eric Marcal, La Forestière, Le Hohwald).
