Although quiche is now considered a classically French dish, it actually originated in Germany. It started in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen, under German rule, which the French later renamed Lorraine (sound familiar!). The word ‘quiche’ is from the German word ‘kuchen’, meaning cake.

The original ‘quiche Lorraine’ was an open pie with a filling comprising an egg and cream custard with smoked bacon. It was only later that cheese was added to the quiche Lorraine. If you add onions, you have quiche Alsacienne. The bottom crust was originally made from bread dough, but that has long since evolved into a short-crust or puff pastry crust.

Quiche became popular in England sometime after WWII, and in the USA during the 1950s. Today, there are many varieties of quiche. At Puckles, we serve a spectacular spinach quiche and the classic quiche Lorraine. We offer them as individual quiches or, for a tasty meal the family will love you can try our family-sized quiches.
