Who thought a beautiful juicy orange would partner a bold herb like tarragon? Make sure you wait for the perfect season, as tarragon will be at its best from the end of April until August. It is a shame the oranges are not in season at the same time but, thankfully, you can still find some great ones. When I had the idea of using them together, it took a while to get the right balance, but finally I got the measure right for this gateau. It is really all in the quantity, as you cannot be heavy-handed with tarragon. The end result is magic!
