If you have never made a galette before, you need to listen up… It is a simple,wonderful free-form pastry shell, ready to be filled with either sweet or savory ingredients, infiltrating your kitchen with that homey smell of baking pie crusts, mmm butter. Think of this as a rustic puff pastry/pie crust ready to be filled with fresh, seasonal ingredients. (Oh, and cheese, lots of cheese!)
Ricotta and Parmesan lay down the creamy, tangy, simply luxurious foundation. Play around with your fillings, once you make your first galette, you will start to roll countless ideas around in your foodie imagination. Go forth with wild abandon!
Keep in mind, you are making a pastry dough, so all ingredients need to be cold, cold, cold and handled to a bare minimum for a flaky crust.
