Pear Galette...

I have made this delicious concoction on several occasions lately. It is ridiculously simple and just so good! My recipe was inspired by Rachel Khoo of The Little Paris Kitchen. She is an adorable British lady who moved to Paris to go to Le Cordon Bleu to become a pastry chef. From there she worked at La Cocotte, a parisian bookstore and tea salon, experimented with cooking and baking in her tiny apartment kitchen, hosted cooking classes, and wrote books. She calls herself a "food creative" and now does culinary projects around the world. She is overall a uniquely creative and inspiring lady and I have been enjoying her recipes very much! (Thanks to my lovely sister for the Christmas present!)

This recipe can be easily adjusted to make more or less...depending on how hungry you are! My proportions could feed two or three as part of a larger meal. Also, you can use any cheese you like...I've tried blue, goat, and gruyere and they are all delicious.

1 large pear
2 small potatoes
fontina cheese
olive oil
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 
Thinly slice the pears and remove seeds and stems. Thinly slice the potatoes.
Cut the cheese into cubes.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Layer the pear and potatoes in two lines, alternating (see photos above!). Spread the cheese cubes on top. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. 

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
