My husband is also a chef and specializes in gorgeous French pastries. But, when we entertain at home, and we entertain often, we prefer simple, big flavored, non-fussy desserts. This galette is a great make-ahead dessert that allows the cook to enjoy time with friends and family.

I wait all season for the tart cherries. They are brightly flavored and taste like …a cherry! The sweeter cherries just don’t have the oomph that the tart variety does. While not great for eating out of hand, tart cherries are amazing and complex in baked items and in ice cream and jams.
