Quiche is an exotic dish.I love it because of its distinctive flavours and exquisite ate that is mouth watering. I remember the first time I heard of the dish, I could hardly pronounce it’s name and thought it was the hardest dish to prepare. But I was amazed at how easy it was to prepare the dish.
Quiche is a savoury tart that originated from Lorraine a region in France. It is an open-faced pastry crust with a filling of savoury custard. It is served as a cocktail item or Hot First Course item.
