Leek, Fennel and Mushroom Galette by Waverly

WHO: Waverly is a former lawyer and a current cook based in Texas.
WHAT: An earthy, substantial galette you can call a meal.
HOW: Whip up a pate brisee, fill it with glorious vegetables, and bake.
WHY WE LOVE IT: This galette has enough wintry vegetables tucked inside to justify eating pastry for dinner. With a zippy, brightly dressed salad and a glass of wine, we can see ourselves savoring this long after the snow starts to melt.

We love this trick: use two pieces of wax paper to prevent sticking.
