The heirloom tomatoes this season are more beautiful and delicious than I can remember in a long time. I've been buying them every week at the farmer's market and putting them in salads with avocado, summer pasta, or just popping the small ones in my mouth like popcorn! Naturally, I decided to throw them into a galette, surprise, surprise!
As most of my friends and family know, I am always making galettes for dinner parties. You can do the bulk of the work ahead of time and everyone loves them; they warm the soul and fill the belly. How can anyone ever tire of a comforting, savory pie? I won't go on too much about my love affair with galettes, but I will say that this recipe is muy deliciosa! Objectively speaking, Maggie (my sister and fellow galette aficionado) along with her Italian boyfriend, Andrea (in Italy galettes are called crostatas), say this one is their absolute favorite (my potato galette ranked no. 1 for several months).
