Recipe recommendation--Jacques Pepin's Plum Galette

Today, I'm featuring Jacques Pepin's Plum Galette. Jacques Pepin, the renowned French chef and longtime friend of Julia Child, is a fascinating character who's television shows have taught me more about cooking than I can remember.

You can also substitute basically any other fruit for plums.
