I send my thanks to the French, or the Germans. Anyone have the final word on the actual origins of quiche?
I have grown quite fond of quiches. The quiche is the quintessential provincial dish. Perfect for the range of occasions -- potlucks and surprise romances included -- the quiche is simplistic, yet sophisticated.
My most recent quiche called for caramelized onions, scallions and chives. It was a true celebration of the onion family made slightly delicate by the introduction of basil.
