Individual Apple Galette with Clementine Cream #CookChilean
Do you remember two weeks ago when I asked for help coming up with recipe ideas to use for some great Chilean ingredients sent to me by Foods From Chile?
I received some very creative ideas and let me tell you, the decision was not easy to make. Do I use the smoked salmon or trout, the fruit or get really creative with the Chilean Mussels? Ultimately, my love for fruit, dessert and generally all things sweet pulled me in the direction of the idea from Donna at Cookistry.
I loved her suggestion of making a tart out of the apple and topping it with clementine whipped cream. Since we only had one apple in our package, I turned Donna’s idea into an individual dessert – a simple, but rustic individual apple galette with clementine cream.
This dessert featuring a beautiful crisp Chilean apple and bright citrus scent from the clementines is the perfect end to any meal.
Since Donna did the hard work of coming up with my idea she is going to be rewarded with a Foods from Chile gift bag (value $30)! Don’t fret, though, on missing your chance to win some Chilean food. You have another opportunity tonight! Join me, Foods from Chile and Kitchen Play on Twitter for a party from 7pm EST. Please RSVP if you plan on stopping by (which also makes you eligible to win prizes!). Don’t forget to follow Foods from Chile on Twitter (@FoodsfromChile) before the party.
Oh and you may want to remember this tidbit of information: Chile produces over 20 varieties of apples, from red to green, including Braeburn, Fuji, Granny Smith, Jona Gold, Red Delicious, and Royal Gala.
