One particular Extra Factor
If I’m turning on my oven in August, it has to be for a thing that’s going to be worthy of it, like, say, Erin Jeanne McDowell’s big, summery tomato and corn galette. I appreciate a galette, wherever the edges are haphazardly folded about the filling on a sheet pan, the two in terms of the ratio of pastry to filling (excellent!) and the aesthetics (a tiny little bit lopsided, charming).
Erin’s pie dough carries a buttery mixture of roasted cherry tomatoes and corn, all baked with each other until the crust is a deep golden brown. It’s a fantastic dish to get to a party or a picnic, and any leftover pieces will be exceptional for lunch the future day with a pile of salad leaves on the facet.
