Tuesdays With Dorie: Berry Galette August 7, 2012


This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie is being hosted by Lisa of Tomato Thymes in the Kitchen and Andrea of The Kitchen Lioness. The recipe they are investigating is the Berry Galette, which is located on page 377 of Baking With Julia.

I decided to mix it up this week and most stick with just berries. The peaches at the market have been simple perfect lately, and that has to be one of my many favorite things. I am hoping that Mike will plant some freestone peach trees in the next year. We just planted some apple trees, which will take about 4 years to start producing. Which will be just in time for Emma to be old enough to start helping in the kitchen.

Back to the peach situation.

To keep with the berry theme, I decided to add a few raspberries.

Who doesn’t love the combination of peaches and raspberries. Peach Melba, yummmmm.

The Galette dough was very easy to put together and I accidentally made a full batch of dough. So I guess I will be making the Tomato and Cheese Galette tomorrow, especially with the fresh tomatoes and basil growing in the garden.

I did have a little leakage while baking the galette so I was unable to plate it because the bottom was compromised. But the taste was simple and perfect. The sweetness of the peaches and the tartness from the raspberries was a perfect match. The cornmeal in the galette dough gave the crust a nice texture and flavor.
