History Of National Quiche Lorraine Day
Quiche Lorraine is believed to have originated in the rural Lorraine region of France. While it’s considered a French dish, it developed during a time when the Lorraine Region was under German rule. Even the word Quiche comes from the German word kuchen meaning cake.
The original Quiche Lorraine was an open pie made with a bottom crust filled with custard and smoked bacon. A cast iron skillet was used to cook the original Quiche. The cheese was only added to the recipe much later.
The origin of the holiday still remains unkknown.
