A quiche for the study of France in geography class (a Cuban flan, too)

kaitlyn Kehoe, Stephen Clark, Blake Holloway and Raciel Pintado were among a number of students who cooked dishes to serve to class mates. Kaitlyn, by the way, is holding a chunk of French bread. There's a relationship between the quiche and the Cuban flan: both are essentially egg custards.

We discovered that the quiche, associated with French cooking, also has Deutsche roots. The German word kuchen is the basis for quiche. The region of Lorraine, home to quiche, is a Rhine region that has been both German and French over its history.
