The famous Tarte Tatin was created by a pair of sisters in the Sologne (not far from here). This guy was at Loches market turning them out in the sun and offering a free third one if you bought two. His apprentice was making little deep fried puffs flavoured with garlic and parsley.
While we were standing there a man sampled one of the puffs, then a second. He was going for his third and the baker decided enough was enough. We were entertained by witnessing a very strongly worded dressing down which included the freeloader being told that he was 'beyond disagreable' and would have the contents of the boiling oil vat tipped over his head if he didn't push off.
After the kerfuffle, we purchased a tarte, which we ate for lunch and it was very good.
