Serves four people as a main course, or six to eight people as an accompaniment or starter. A Tian is a traditional ovenproof terracotta clay dish - usually oval - which is used extensively in the south of France. Many dishes are named after this dish in which they are cooked, and this is one of them. This wonderful dish with the essence of Summer from the S.W. of France can be served hot or tepid as a main course, with a tossed green salad & crusty French bread, or as an “Amuse Gueule” with aperitifs – the literal French translation is a snack to “amuse the mouth” for the main course which follows! You can make the fresh tomato sauce yourself, but most French housewives use the readily available & superb tinned & chopped tomatoes for ease & convenience; this speeds up the preparation of the dish considerably. The béchamel type sauce would be made with “Brousse” in France – strained Cottage cheese is a good alternative. A large Aubergine would be about 500g each.
