recipefor Apple Galette comes from Las Vegas chef Les
Kincaid. Les was one of the earliest contributors to
love anything to do with food, wine or golf. Most people
'eat to live' and most others 'live to eat'. I prefer
the 'live to eat'. Cooking is said to be therapeutic.
In today's hectic world, unless we engross ourselves
into something relaxing, we'll go crazy, by the end
of the day. So just get into the kitchen and try to
be creative using your imagination. It need not be a
gourmet meal or anything grand just something simple
