I know this isn’t a dessert recipe, but hey, sometimes I make real food too. And when I do, it’s naturally going to be from one of the three four cookbooks I bought while in Paris and it’s going to be a classic French recipe – quiche!
Clotilde is a talented food blogger based in Paris. Her cookbook is full of seasonal, vegetarian recipes that I’ve been poring over for weekday and weeknight meals. This quiche particularly stood out for a few reasons. One, the crust is not made from butter but olive oil. In a dessert world, it’s butter or nothing at all, as that’s how the crust gets its flaky appeal. But for a savory dish, olive oil adds a layer of flavor into the dough that complements the filling nicely.
