This is just an upside down tart, most often found in apple form, but for a simple – and it really is simple – savoury version, it works brilliantly with tomatoes, because (in theory at least), the pastry will stay crisper when baked on top of the tart.

  1. Cut the tomatoes in half.
  2. Melt butter into tarte tatin tin or pan that can be used on the hob and in the oven.
  3. Place tomatoes cut-side down in the pan and cook gently for around 5 minutes.
  4. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (gas 5) remove from hob and scatter Feta cheese over the tomatoes.
  5. Top with rolled out puff pastry and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  6. When the pastry is brown remove from the oven and place your serving dish over the pastry top. Gripping both sides, carefully invert the tart and lift off the tin.
  7. Sprinkle with oregano and serve.
