Bella Makes a Blackberry Galette


I liked the restrained use of blackberries and the elegant reliance on a perfect crust in this dessert. It's from Nigella, of course.

Perfect crust. I never thought I'd need to use *those* words. My crusts are always tasty, but messy. I'm passing the baton to Bella.

You have got me seriously thinking I've got to get that Nigella cookbook. Is it the one about being a Domestic Goddess in the title?

Congratulations dear Bella for for mastering both phyllo and crusts! I have yet to try either. As the previous commenter asked as well, which Nigella book did the recipe originate from?

I've been very impressed with the baked goods Bella makes. They look like the pictures in a good cookbook. Julia Child has a baking show that she might like on PBS.

Right--that's How to Be a Domestic Goddess. It has really proved itself to be a useful one. We've found lots of favorites in it.

I vote for Bella for the next TV chef! And could she come visit our house for a week? Or a month?! I don't know, though, since we have all been gaining weight on those fried corn patties she made and you shared LOL! Seriously, for her age, or any age, she is an awesome chef!

Thank you, Anna! I have that book on hold at the library and can't wait for it to come in! I checked out her "Feast" book and look forward to reading it and possibly using some Thanksgiving recipes.

Thanks Anna! I'll be on the lookout for the book at the library.

I know what you mean about crusts! Mine taste really good, but are so messy....some people have the gift!

I think it is now Bella's duty and moral obligation to share her crust recipe/method. Consider this a way to better her fellow chefs!

Margo said...

ha ha - I recognize the messy, but tasty crust! That's how mine are!
So impressed with Bella. I bet this is a career in bud. . .
