Pretend you are at a Parisian patisserie and make this stunningly simple plum tart with a drizzle of plum glaze when it comes out of the oven.
By Aysegül Sanford
Paris, to me, is always a good idea. My first visit to this magical city was with my best friend in our junior year in college. It was our first time visiting abroad without our parents’ supervision. Imagine our sheer excitement! As every tourist would, my dear friend wanted to see all the museums and historical monuments, while I had other priorities, which as you might imagine, involved nothing else but food.
As I was thinking about what recipes to share with you, I thought about the sweet smell of those baked delicacies, which even after many years later, I still remember vividly. And it was exactly at that moment that I decided to bring Paris home.
This plum galette is the kind of dessert you would find in every Parisian patisserie. Looking at the photos you may think that it looks like it is too much work, but it really isn’t. Yes, I did spend sometime to line each slice perfectly, but it isn’t the end of the world if the slices of plums are not perfectly aligned like they are in the photos. The only important thing that would affect the end product is the thickness of the plums. For even cooking, they should all be sliced equally in thickness.
Once it comes out of the oven and you pour a couple of tablespoons of the quick glaze you made earlier, this galette tastes like heaven. Just like those delicacies you would enjoy if you were in Paris.Print
