I took a week off from filming The Winery Kitchen over Mother’s Day weekend because I wanted to spend some quality time with my husband and little girl. Now, I may not have been filming but I was still cooking in the kitchen! My daughter Mia and I put together a couple of super simple, quick and easy galettes. You can fill them with any flavour combination you like (sweet or savoury). They are super fun to make and really delicious!
If you haven’t heard of a galette – well … it is basically a name given to a round, free-form pie. Not to be confused with a Breton galette which is more like a folded crepe with filling! Ok, so this is not traditionally Spanish, but with France as a neighbour, there does exist a popular Catalan version of a galette made with almonds called a Rois Royal. So, close enough for me! 🙂
Needless to say, my version is ridiculously simple to make and has a rustic elegance that looks amazing served up on the dining table. Just between you and I, if you’re no Martha Stewart, this dish hides imperfections beautifully! (*wink*)
This galette recipe uses my poached pears and some quince paste.
This flavour combination is lovely, and the pie is like Autumn on a plate. I also believe this recipe is influenced enough by heritage flavours to be called ‘A Spanish Galette’.
The beautiful baked smell alone will send them rushing into the kitchen.
I hope you enjoy it, Raquel x
