This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is for the Cheese and Tomato Galette which is located on page 429 in Baking With Julia.


I actually made this recipe when we made the Berry Galette last year because it was in the middle of the summer and I had fresh tomatoes and basil at the time. Currently, I am waiting for my tomatoes to ripen and the basil plants haven’t gotten that big yet. But I remember the Galette tasting very good and reminiscent of a pizza and we had this for dinner. Whenever I make this dough again, I will definitely be making the Cheese and Tomato Galette again.

For the week of June 4, the recipe for Tuesdays With Dorie was Savarin which is located on page 416-417 in Baking With Julia.


For this recipe , I actually didn’t have a Savarin pan so I used my doughnut pan and made 6 mini Savarins. This recipe was actually really easy to make and the rise time for the dough was really short. I made some modifications to the recipe based on ingredients that I had in the house. The recipe called for pear water, which I didn’t have so I left it out of the recipe. For the raspberry puree, I didn’t see the point to making it when I only needed 2 tablespoons, so I tossed fresh raspberries with heated raspberry preserves. I think it turned out just as good. The Savarin dough did have a very yeasty flavor, but it wasn’t anything that bothered me since the simple syrup (rum), whipped cream, and raspberries balanced out the flavors.
