here are 3 things you should know about my husband:
- he hates strawberries and strawberry-anything (i know…).
- he is generally a bit skeptical of my “put an herb in it” approach to dessert-making.
- he ate this entire strawberry galette with thyme, save for one slice, in less than 24 hours.
need i say more?
he ate the first (several) slices standing over the kitchen sink as strawberry juice dripped from the slices of galette that he kept cutting for himself. so, there’s that too.
in case you’re not totally sold yet, i could describe the buttery pastry that is both delicious and easy to work with (press it into a circle-ish, put strawberries in the middle, fold up the messy edges, aaaaand you’re a rustic fruit galette master!).
or i could talk about how adding so few ingredients to the strawberries really lets them shine, because, let’s be honest, the bright red, juicy, fragrant sweet strawberries that only last a day or two once you bring them home from the market this time of year don’t need much to be amazing.
or i could describe how the thyme subtly complements the strawberries and gives the whole dessert a little bit of a unique flavor without being too out there or overpowering. (put an herb in it: check!)
but instead i think i’m just going to let you run to the market to grab your strawberries before you blink and the season is over.
