Rustic Galette With Winter Vegetables

Galettes, or free-form pies, are beautiful because they are imperfect. As someone who has struggled with attaining the perfect pie crust shape time and time again, the galette is a slightly more forgiving yet equally delicious circular centerpiece. While summer’s bounty of berries and stone-fruit make sweet pies spectacular, hearty winter vegetables in a flaky crust make a comforting savory meal that disappears just as fast.

Festival of Lights in the Land of Enchantment: Chanukah Foods

In a state where almost a third of the entire population identifies as Catholic, I am often met with excited interest upon identifying myself. Sometimes, I’m the first Jewish person someone has ever met. “So, do you go to Jewish… church?” (No.) “Do you celebrate Christmas?” (Of course. It’s the best!) And as a cultural Jew in a sea of Santos, Marias and Chile-ristra crosses, I feel more encouraged to share my heritage than I did before moving here. Here in the...
