One of France’s World Favorite Foods
Jose Mier Gastronomy has been posting several of the world’s most favorite foods recently and here’s another one to add to your list: quiche Lorraine. This French dish gained widespread popularity in the last few decades. It’s not hard to see why since one of the main ingredients is eggs and this lends itself perfectly to the breakfast table, especially when bacon is added to the mix. However, quiche, and in this case quiche Lorraine, is not just for breakfast. It can be served at any meal.
There are different varieties of quiches but Lorraine is the most well-known and the most popular. That’s why you’re going to find hundreds if not thousands of recipes online for this dish. The one I am referencing in this article is from simplyrecipes.com but most of the other recipes are going to be very similar.
The ingredients for quiche Lorraine include eggs, cream, Gruyere cheese and seasonings. This can be used as the base for any other type of quiche you’d like to make, and you can certainly get creative with the ingredients. Don’t forget the crust, either. Remember this isn’t just an omelette, it’s a type of pastry and you want to get the crust just righ. I make it easy on myself and use prepackaged pie crusts but you’re certainly able to make your own crust from scratch.
The great thing about quiche Lorraine is that it can be paired if anything from orange juice to Cabernet Sauvignon. So whether you’re having mess for breakfast, lunch or dinner I’m sure you’re going to enjoy it.
One of the places I know I can find good quiche Lorraine near Sun Valley California is at a restaurant and pastry place called Porto’s in our neighboring city of Burbank, located 3614 West Magnolia Blvd.
