une tarte aux pommes, la confiture de fraises

When does one use à la/ au/ aux versus de for composite foods?

Bonjour Jean,


This is a complicated subject, but very generally speaking, you use à when the item is just one component (tarte aux pommes) and de when it's made primarily of that ingredient (confiture de fraises). Take a look at à vs de for more.
