yesterday was Linda's brithday. we threw a little surprise party in the back room at Gustare Mashpee for her.
naturally, i was put in charge of desserts for a secret gathering of yummy foods and happy people. i made some chocolate cupcakes, filled them with dulce de leche and salted them (yum), but i also made a new thing. a fun thing. a yum thing... this thing...
a galette. which i discovered via foodgawker. my excellent instruction came from www.melissahartfiel.com, though i changed the fruit from blackberries to figs and added a little Gustare balsamic vinegar in there to sweeten things up even more.
my galette was good hot, good cold, good reheated.
so Linda had a happy birthday party, and i made a successful new thing! i think i might attempt an appley one for thanksgiving. ^___^
