Sourdough Surprises - June

Friday, May 22, 2015


Here in the US, its the beginning of summer, and berries and fruits are coming into season. What better way to celebrate by making a gallete or crostata, which are rustic and free-form tarts often filled with fruits (but also sometimes with veggies!) Now, we have made sourdough pies before, but I thought it has been long enough and we have enough new members that we should give it a shot. But instead of doing a traditional pie in a plate, I want us to focus on the more rustic and simple crostatas and galettes.

The pie crust we used before is a pate brisee, and turned out wonderful, with a flaky and tender dough with just a hint of sourdough flavor. If you would like to go that route, please check out this link. You can also check out this recipe but you will need to go get the book!  Like always, you are free to use any recipe you like, and any ingredients with which to flavor your crostatas. If you would like more inspiration, please check out our Monthly Inspiration Board on Pinterest!

What an interesting idea! I have a blog, do love sour dough and would love to participate. But what is a galette?

Hi Caroline! A galette is a rustic, free form pie. It is made without a pan, usually by just folding the edges of the crust over the filling (fresh fruits or veggies).
