On the very same day that an email from Ali Larter appeared in my inbox, I was researching her first cookbookKitchen Revelry: A Year of Festive Menus from My Home to Yours. It was, no doubt, a sign. The cookbook is lovely, with intimate, gorgeous photography from famed food photographer Amy Neunsinger. I want to make this simple Apple Crostata now. Thanks for sharing with Eat Boutique, Ali! -Maggie

I love going to the farmers market and bringing home whatever looks the freshest and most mouth-watering. When apples come in, I make my free form crostata. I’m a sucker for any treat that adults love and I can serve my son. I usually use aged gouda, my Mom adds sharp cheddar, but try whatever cheese is your fave. It’s so easy to do… it’s hard to mess it up, and healthy enough to eat dessert leftovers for breakfast.


You can turn the dish into a fun Fall adventure, too: find an apple farm near you, pack up your family and/or friends, and spend an afternoon apple picking (pack a picnic and drink some cider!) It’s all the excuse I need to spend a weekend in Ojai, about an hour and a half from Los Angeles, and stop by the apple farm there on the way home for a truly homemade crostata.

Have a fabulous Fall! Ali xx
