Galette

FINALLY some local berries are arriving at the markets. I just picked up some and WOW they are good. I only got about 5 to 6 pounds. We will have a few Galette’s this weekend at the markets, so come early because they will go fast. Hopefully as more and more berries and fruits
come available this summer and fall we will have more and more.

Galette is a rustic free-formed tart filled normally filled with seasonal berries and fruits. They are a staple at most farmers markets in France. They are less romantic then a traditional tart, but offer a more crisp crust. These little treats are great with an afternoon espresso or coffee with a friend.
