‘Tis the season for warming feasts and cooking for friends. While good wine and an inspiring playlist, of course, make for an epic dinner party
, what you choose to plate can also make or break the mood. That’s why we’re bypassing pies
and classic cold-weather casseroles
for something a bit more sophisticated this winter: the galette.
This rustic French pastry is similar to a pizza crust or tart, but much more elegant and surprisingly very easy to make. Once you’ve nailed how to make the basic dough you can top it with delicious combinations of savory fillings of your choice—from butternut squash to broccoli and feta, the possibilities are endless. Here, we give you the mouth-watering galette recipes perfect for a side dish or your new go-to weeknight dinner.
