quiches, tarts…

Most people think that quiche was invented by the French, but quiche actually originated in Germany, in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen, under German rule, and which the French later renamed Lorraine. The word “quiche” is from the German “Kuchen”, meaning cake.

It’s easy to prepare and can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner…

The main ingredients of the filling are eggs and cheese…the rest is optional.

Recently I had quiche with asparagus, ham and onions…and a small tart with tomatoes and leeks.
