Today we’re going to talk about pie.

Just pie.

Not Brexit.

Not the ‘barely subtle’ racism that’s been bubbling like lava beneath the earth’s crust in some people’s souls.

We won’t speak about the Black Lives Matter vs. the All Lives Matter debate.

We’re not discussing Jesse Williams’ poignant speech, delivered at the BET awards.

Ok, let’s talk about him a little. He’s more than eye candy, y’all. There’s a leader in that body. Who knew?

We’re not talking about Trump or Hilary. Or Hilary and Trump.

Gun reform has no place here.

We are going to talk about pie. Well, galette. Which is pie, for those who can’t deal with crimping and pretty lattices. Fuck a lattice.

Galettes are pie’s awkward teenage cousin. The cousin who hasn’t grown into her looks. She’s clumsy, and uncoordinated. Her limbs haven’t caught up to her body. Her nose, a touch too long.

But beneath all that there is beauty there. All it needs is time, ya’ dig?

That’s what a galette is. At first glance it’s not beautiful, or even pretty. It’s rustic. There’s no polish to it. It’s put together almost haphazardly. It’s adorned with fruit in an almost natural state. A little sugar, a bit of vanilla extract. Heat is responsible for shaping the galette. Pie dough expands, relaxes. Fruit bubbles.

Out of the oven is almost beautiful.

The real beauty is the very first bite.

Flaky, buttery crust and a burst of fruit swimming in their own caramelized juices.

Three, four bites.

Another slice.

A third slice.

Oops.

All gone.

The beauty is how simple galettes are to make. Pie crust in less than five minutes. If you macerate berries ahead of time it’s another five minutes of prep.

Then, bam!

Rustic pie.

Without the whole crimping, shaping biz.

‘Cause its summer and ain’t nobody got time for that.
