Apple Galette RECIPE

Las Vegas chef Les KincaidThis recipefor Apple Galette comes from Las Vegas chef Les Kincaid. Les was one of the earliest contributors to Hub-UK.

"I 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 and satisfying."

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Arrange the pastry and a baking sheet, top with the apples forming concentric circles and sprinkle with sugar.
