The Alsace Lorraine area is influenced by different cultures because it is located at the German French border. The food here also integrates two different cooking methods, French and German.
Quiche Lorraine originated from Alsace Lorraine area in the 16th century and is as soft as butter cookies. The pastry is filled with soft fillings such as cheese, cream, bacon and ham with strong milk flavor. After baking, it sends out a strong fragrance.
In fact, the Quiche used to be the food of the poor. Until the French Revolution, French farmers mainly ate flour, meat and egg milk from their farms.
The ancient French style meat pie doesn't even need an oven. It just needs to put the dough into a cast iron pan, pour thick egg milk on it, sprinkle with bacon dice, and add some chopped onions as you like. It's as simple as a pancake.
With the rapid pace of modern life, Quiche Lorraine, a simple and easy-to-make cuisine, is also rapidly popular. People have made different changes to Quiche according to their own preferences.
Because of its relatively rough taste, the ordinary dough was gradually replaced by the tarp named "Pâte brisée". It is more soft because of the addition of butter, and the choice of stuffing is more abundant. You can even match a French style country meat pie of your own!
