This week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays comes from Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Everyday Dorie and it’s a beauty – a tart dough made into a galette filled with leeks, mushrooms and bacon. I mean – how do you go wrong there?
A galette is just a free form single layer pie/ tart and they were my entry point into feeling confident with pastry. Because they are meant to be rustic looking, you don’t have to worry about perfecting your pie-crust crimping – they really are the least stressful pastry item ever!
The filling has a typical Dorie “surprise” (in Everyday Dorie, she always likes to include an ingredient that will have people thinking “what’s that flavour/ texture?”) in that it includes walnuts for some crunch. The flavours really are perfect and the dish works well warm or even at room temperature. The pastry stands up to being reheated in the microwave also (bonus excellent leftover lunches!). Though I often make galettes with all sorts of sweet or savoury fillings, I’ll remember this combination of ingredients – it’s a winner!
