Quiche, Küeche, Cake : It's all Savoury Goodness

Wednesday, 17 April 2013

Quiche (/ˈkʃ/ keesh) is a savoury, pastry crust dish with a filling of savoury custard with either meat, vegetables, or fish. 

It's also perhaps the only type of Western fare which BabyMoo likes. His palate is pure Asian, and he doesn't really fancy pasta or burgers, or potatoes. Give him duck rice, soya sauce chicken rice or thick, hearty meatball and century egg porridge, and he will be a very happy boy.

But Quiche? He loves. Maybe because it's almost similar to steamed egg, which is a predominantly Chinese dish.

Quiche is now considered a classic French dish, but many people aren't aware that it actually originated in Germany, in the medieval kingdom called Lorraine. Quiche is derived from the German word 'Kuchen', meaning cake.

I had a Salmon and Spinach Quiche earlier. Come drool with me.
