Did You Know?

Quiche lorraine is named after the Lorraine region of France. Although quiche is now a classic French dish, it actually originated in Germany, in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen. The French later renamed it Lorraine after the region was conquered, thus adopting this dish as their own. The word ‘quiche’ is from the German ‘Kuchen’, meaning cake – an egg cake in this case, to be exact.
