Fully homemade, elegant meals aren't hard to achieve if you pick the right dishes - and galettes are near the top of the list when it comes to easy dishes that impress. The name alone evokes the delicacy and miniaturized refinement that many would associate with French cuisine even if they didn't know it was a French dish to begin with. And ignoring that, these free-form pastries are quite beautiful on their own, especially when filled with bright, fresh fruits or vegetables. Master the art of rustic French cuisine in your kitchen by trying one of these phenomenal galette recipes!
