A Quiche Lorraine is a typical French cuisine recipe, very much appreciated all over the world for its easy preparation and distinctive taste.
It is a rustic tart made of a shortcrust pastry base usually filled with pancetta, cheese, cream, parmesan, gruyère and eggs.
The original filling of this traditional salty tart was a mix of the main ingredients, that is eggs and sour cream. Later, the recipe evolved in many variants.
For instance, the quiche vosgienne includes Swiss emmental cheese which is used for its characteristic of being easily melted and the quiche alsacienne named after the presence of onion within its ingredients.
Due to its versatility a quiche lorraine is perfect on every occasion and it is always widely relished. Try making it for a special dinner, it will be a success! ;-)
