Traditional Quiche IFC # 2


Quiche is a part of french cuisine. It is an open faced pastry crust with a savory filling in it . The filling could be eggs, cheese , meat , seafood, spinach or any kind of vegetables. It could be either served hot or cold.

This  month's challenge on IFC was French Cuisine ( Alsace Lorraine ). As usual 3 recipes were suggested we had to choose one and explore it . The recipes were :
  • Tarte Flambee.
  • Kugelhopf
  • Quiche Lorraine / Traditional Quiche
I tried Traditional Quiche and it came out really well . We both loved it so much . The pie crust was crispy the filling was cheesy and creamy . I had made some changes from the original recipe  according my taste buds.  I had omitted the chicken and added vegetables . Traditional Quiche was absolutely delicious. Thank you +Shobana Sekar  for suggesting these wonderful recipes.
