Definition: Galette

A flat, round French pastry with a thin crust that can be either sweet or savory. The galette may be made from puff pastry, a dough such as brioche, or, commonly, a sweet pastry crust. The range of toppings may include fresh fruit, nut pastes, jams, nuts, meats, egg, or cheeses. Unlike tarts, these pastries are more rustic, as they are made by hand without a flan ring or a quiche pan. Alternatively, a galette may also refer to a crêpe made with buckwheat.

i've always considered a galette to be very tart-like since i've never had a savory version - just the sweet ones. i do like that you've give me a bit more information on them though - i like to be educated about my international foods seeing as how everyone's tastes are shifting to be more global these days.

this look nothing like the galettes I know. And the first meaning is actually the salty crêpe, the second one a biscuit, the third the definition given above.
