This week’s recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie was perfect for me. A galette is something I always love to make (just last week I wrote about mini blueberry galettes!) but when I am in France, getting carried away with all the lovely market produce it’s even more enjoyable. Note that I would be doing the same if I was at home too, but there at least I have one more person in my house and more people to help me taste my baking!
Last week I visited the nearby Lavardac market (check out my little video tour!) where I found local blueberries, raspberries and black raspberries and I knew immediately that I would use these in this week’s recipe from Baking Chez Moi along with a peach that was on its last legs (this is the beauty of galettes – you can use fruit that is less that perfect because it’s going to bake anyway!)
This came together pretty quickly – Dorie’s galette dough is easy to make (though using different butter and flour produced a wetter dough than I am used to) and the filling is a wonderful combination of berries and other fruit (I used white nectarines) with mint and lime. SO refreshing.
I made 1/2 the amount of dough which resulted in a galette that must have been around 6″ in diameter which was perfect for three slices – one for me and my new neighbour Maurine as a pre-emptive snack before we headed out to watch one of the Euro 2016 games, then one leftover for me for breakfast the next morning.
