Although it is widely assumed that Quiche is a very old French dish, historical records show it was already made in Medieval England (then produced under the name ‘Crustarde‘). Essentially, both descriptions mean the same thing, namely an open and savoury tart that is made of milk, egg and cream.
Many variations have been developed of this lovely dish, and it is a favourite for light lunches, suppers, festivities and many more occasions. It’s popularity is global, but for the best Hong Kong has to offer of this tasty dish, see below. There’s everything from classic Quiches to modern recipes, so take a look, there’s one for every occasion.
