- Preheat oven to 200C, Gas 6. Unroll the pastry keeping, it on the paper. Using a fork, pierce the pastry all over, leaving an edge all the way around the pastry of 2-3cm. This edge is the pastry that will be folded over to create the crust.
- Cut the radishes into random shapes: halves, wedges, discs and so on. Toss with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, picked thyme leaves, garlic, and a good seasoning of salt and pepper.
- Crumble over the ricotta, leaving the 2-3cm edge again and scatter over the radish pieces. Fold in the edges of the pastry, brush the folded edge of the pastry with the melted butter and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
- Once cooked remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly and sprinkle over the dill. Serve with a green salad.

Galettes are normally pretty to look at, finished with crimping or patterns around the outer edges, and a show-stopping topping. This is why they make for great dinner party dishes.
