The claim where galettes are only cooked on one side doesn't make sense.

Of course, it does. The crêpes are very thin, you known. Cooking one side is enough, even if the other side is not totally cooked, it's hot and delicious to eat. (Blllakk (talk) 02:42, 21 August 2008 (UTC))

I've seen a type of single crust, free-form pie (with the crust folded partway over the top of the filling) called a galette, too. In fact, I have a cookbook that has several such recipes in it, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. The website www.joyofbaking.com defines the term galette as "a French term signifying a flat round cake that can be either sweet or savory and while this recipe uses puff pastry as a base, they can also be made from yeast risen doughs like broiche, or with a sweet pastry crust." [1]. Should these different uses of the term be noted? --H-ko 00:22, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

The problem is that even in French French, "galette" has two possible meanings: One of them is a type of crepe. The other is a King cake. Medinoc (talk) 18:44, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Canadian meaning[edit]

I've added a quick sentence about a variation on the meaning of the word in Canada. Observer31 02:54, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Potato dish[edit]

What about the potato dish made from slices and sautéed potatoes like a thin and crispy Pommes Anna? Galette de Pommes de Terre at least has got a french page. --5.146.47.75 (talk) 21:38, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
