Sweet & Savory Galettes

A French rolling pin for galette crust

this class is being offered virtually and in-person.

A galette is a fancy French word for a free-form pie. It sounds and looks impressive, but in this hands-on class, we’ll teach you to master this rustic but elegant pastry. First, we’ll start with an important building block: mixing, rolling, and shaping a basic all-butter pie dough. Then we’ll use that dough to create individual savory galettes filled with herbed goat cheese (from Zingerman’s Creamery) and sliced tomatoes. Then we’ll make a gorgeous, large, sweet galette—with almond frangipane and seasonal fruit (apple in March-June, peach in July-Aug). These are the recipes to roll out at your next dinner party.

You’ll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the four small savory galettes and large sweet galette you made in class.

What our guests have to say about this class:

One of the best parts about this class is that we made an easy, useful pie dough—something that I'd readily try on a moment's notice. It's nice not to be afraid of pie dough anymore. —Kathleen C.

This was one of the most fun things I've ever done. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of learning in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm going to be making galettes for everything now. —Bolanle A.

I think I'll be making savory galettes for dinner every other week now. —Emily P.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale


A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. Shipping is included in the price.
