The galette is my best friend. Specifically, this sweet corn and slow roasted tomato galette, in all its flavorful, savory glory.
See, I love to make galettes because they can look imperfect and still be perfect. I can fudge it up a bit on shaping the crust, or some of the filling can leak out, and nobody cares. In fact, it only adds more charm to the dish. So I can lazily prepare a galette, let it do its thing without a worry, and whatever happens, happens. C’est la vie. Que sera, sera.
And isn’t that how it should be in these early summer days? We should be spending more time outside than working tediously in our kitchens. We should be relaxing our bones instead of overworking a dough. We should be eating more rustic galettes with crunchy sweet corn, slow roasted tomatoes and fresh ribbons of basil (that I grew myself! Glory be!) scattered on top of a tender, flaky cream cheese pastry crust.0
