Butternut Squash Galette

In by Katherine, Foodie Fridays on November 13 at 10:53 pm

Nadia and I went to Berkeley Bowl with her roommates today and purchased the fresh ingredients for this butternut squash galette.

The recipe originally appeared in Gourmet Magazine and was adapted from a dish at Venus Restaurant right on Shattuck.

Nadia is one of the best college chefs I know. Her specialty is baked goods, but as a vegetarian, she also makes very tasty entrees that incorporate the flavors of the season. Now bust out your monocles, because we decided to hold Foodie Friday’s first Highly Pretentious Interview:

KM: Nadia, what is a galette?
NK: Well. A galette is a traditional French pastry that can be either sweet or savory, which typically consists of a flaky pate brisee, or butter crust.
KM: What kind of galette did we make this evening?
NK: As it is autumn and butternut squashes are in season, we made a butternut squash galette complimented by the flavors of goat cheese, and leeks. We embellished the traditional galette crust with the fresh flavor of sage.
KM: Why sage?
