What Is Galette

First of all, let me explain what galette really is. Galette is a flat, round crust pie that is made with flour, butter, a little bit of salt, sugar and water. Big plus for not needing any baking pan to prepare it. And all you have to do is to combine these ingredients until it comes together. It supposed to look rustic and can be made sweet or savory.

Here is a list of fruits that i love to make galette with:

  • pears
  • peach
  • blueberry
  • plum

You can use any fruit you like, even banana or fig. You can even prepare galette in a salty way and make it with vegetables! How amazing is that ?
