Savoring French culture: make a quiche to sample in class

Quiche is a savory, open-faced pastry crust dish with a filling of savory custard with cheese, meat or vegetables, says Wikipedia.

Quiche lorraine is a popular variant that was originally an open pie with a filling of custard with smoked bacon. It was only later that cheese was added to the quiche lorraine.[5]

The addition of Gruyère cheese makes a quiche au gruyère or a quiche vosgienne.

Quiche au fromage (quiche with cheese) and quiche aux champignons (quiche with mushrooms) or florentine (spinach); provençale (tomatoes); and so on.

Served cold. Slice into many narrow slices, s'il vous plait.
