A quiche is an open-faced savoury custard tart, generally thought to have originated in the French province of Lorraine.

Although bread dough was traditionally used, in modern times shortcrust pastry – and occasionally puff pastry – is commonly substituted.

Quiche may be served hot or cold. It is an extremely versatile dish – excellent as a first course or appetizer and equally satisfying as a light main dish.
