Let me break it down for you…Galette is a French term that refers to a variety of flat, round cakes, typically made with a flaky pastry/pie dough. As opposed to a tradtional pie, where the dough is places in a pie dish then the filling is places inside and finaly topped with more dough, a gallet is assembled differently. Instead, the filling is placed directly on top of a sheet of rolled out dough and then the edges of that dough are folded up and around the filling, leaving the middle section of the filling exposed. Galettes can be made sweet or savory, filled with everything from vegetables to apples to cheese.
This Rustic Berry Galette recipe is one of my favorite galettes to make. It just screams summer with the fresh berries and I had to top it with some scoops of homemade ice cream because I mean why not?! For this recipe, you can use whatever berries you have on hand or find at your local farmer’s market. Speaking of Farmer’s markets, yesterday I went to the LA Farmer’s Market to meet up with Katherine McCord of Weelicious.com, where there were tons of berries!
I encourage you to play around with the filling of this recipe. You can add whatever you’d like into the galette. You can switch out different fruits or even a whole different filling entirely. Since the dough has only a tablespoon of sugar in it, you can totally make a savory galette with whatever veggies and cheeses you have on hand. That is really why I love galettes so much! They are just incredibly versatile. If you make this recipe or any of my others post a picture of your creation on social media and tag me @chefeitanbernath.

I hope you enjoy this delicious Rustic Berry Galette recipe as much as I did! Also, I am in Los Angeles this week. While I am here I will be doing tons of Instagram Stories of what I am up to. It’s some really cool stuff.
