Enticing aromas come from this delectable peach tart as it bakes. Bubbling and golden it is a dessert sure to please.

Ingredients

Dough:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
3 tbsp. sugar
10 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces and well chilled
4-5 tbsp. ice water
1 large egg yolk beaten with 1 tsp. water

Filling:
5 or 6 peaches, peeled and sliced (about 5 cups)
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch of kosher salt

 

Steps

Dough:

1. Combine the flour, cornmeal, salt and 1 tbsp. sugar. Add the cold butter all at once. Mix on low speed until mixture begins to resemble coarse cornmeal with some large chunks. Add ice water, 1 tbsp. at a time, tossing it with the dough.

2. Once the dough holds together; put it onto a piece of plastic wrap and gather it up to form a flat, round disk. Wrap it well in the plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least an hour.

Filling:

1. Combine all of the filling ingredients in a large bowl and toss gently to combine.

2. To assemble and bake: Heat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a 14- to 15-in. circle; trim any rough edges, to maintain shape. Transfer dough to the baking sheet, allowing any excess to hang over the sides.

3. Pour the filling onto the dough, leaving a 2-in. edge of dough with no filling on it. Fold the dough over the fruit toward the center, pleating and overlapping as necessary. Brush the edges of the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle the galette with the 2 tbsp. sugar.

4. Bake until crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, 45-50 min. Remove from the oven and let cool a little before cutting.

One of my favorite cartoons shows a commander whose soldiers are in the midst of fighting a war with bows and arrows. Without turning around, he tells a man who has come up behind him, “I’m sorry, I’m too busy to talk to you.” The man was a rifle salesman.

In today’s time-pressed world, we are all too busy. So, it can be difficult to find time to reach out to others for ideas, solutions and best practices. But as that cartoon illustrates, it’s critical to being successful. The sharing of knowledge is a pillar of FoodService Director . Through our magazine and events, we have been...

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch. Through featuring different chefs and chef-inspired meals, I’ve found the students have been looking forward to coming into the cafeteria. They are willing to try new things with crazy names, and to ask for their favorite outside items turned healthy.
