Recipe #7: Quiche

Seemingly every person in the world has tried his or her hand at making a quiche.  That is, everyone but me.  It was ‘bout time for a savory turn in the kitchen.  Also, I had the second round of tart dough in the freezer from making the apple nougatine tart last week, and that needed to be used. After perusing my options within these guidelines, I landed here at Club Quiche.

The dough ended up rolling out nicely.  I had been worried since it had been in the freezer and I wasn’t sure if, or how long, such things could handle life in the cold abyss next to the dregs of some ice cream and frozen peas.  

I took a crazy amount of pictures of the dough in this dish.  It just looked so perfect, covered the sides wonderfully, and was such an even thickness – much better than my first attempt.  I mean that was good, but this one, THIS ONE!, was amazing. 

Having just baked the same tart shell a few days prior, and scrambling for pie weights (to ensure the crust didn’t rise while it was baking), then having to use some lightweight rice that lead to less than desired results, you think I’d learn my lesson.  Nope.  I got to this point and there was more scrambling, but this time I had brown rice on hand, which worked out very well.

The last time this flaky tart shell was seen in tact.

A pile of thyme.

Just five eggs.  I figured it would take a dozen, at least.

Anyone who’s ever watched some Top Chef knows if you’re a real deal chef, you put crème fraîche in stuff.  Tom Colicchio and Padma Lakshmi are always impressed when that’s in the mix.  I was on the hunt and even had to go to a couple places to get it.  The woman who helped me find it was so impressed and patted me on the back.  (No joke!)  And, the woman in the checkout line was enamored as well,“Oooh, cream fraish.  That’s fancy.  What are you making?”  Her awesome mispronunciation and the fact that she acknowledged the fanciness of the product had me walking proud.  You want me to like something?  Tell me it’s fancy.  You want to compliment me?  The word fancy will get you far.

We had friends coming over for brunch, and I was so happy that I’d be making them such an impeccable dish.  I was also ready to wow everyone with some brunch chatter – you know, how this recipe incorporates a little flour, which is the way they do things at the Boulangerie Artisanal des Maures, which is in the Var region of France.  That’s where the authors of the cookbook apprenticed.  Who knows if my guests would care, but I was eager to share all of this.  I was in the kitchen, whisking things away, just thinking about how excited I was about this tart shell, and to see improvement from the previous time I’d baked it.  The fact that I got pummeled in the face by a knife sharpener that fell from high above as I tried to get the kitchen scissors didn’t really have me down.  How could I be sad or feel pain with such a wonderful flaky tart shell cooling on the dining room table?  Perhaps I am emphasizing this step of the process, stressing the perfection, exaggerating it a bit really, because we all know what the fate of this here flaky tart shell was.  May she rest in peace.  She will always be the standard of flaky tart shells all others will be compared to.  I should write that on a tiny tombstone.

A sieve!  Incorporating gadgets in of all kinds in the kitchen is always a plus.  It was at this point in the road, completing the sieve process, when I needed to fill that tart shell…

 

*Note: We ended up having fancy pancakes with Nutella, strawberries and bananas at our brunch.  I was pretty bummed, and Nutella is always a real pick-me-up. 

And on to round two, the next morning…

As far as round two goes, it’s nice how it’s becoming second-nature to whip up some flaky tart shell dough!

Ready to be filled.

Ta-da!  Quiche!  It really doesn’t look at good as it tastes.  So far I’ve had to add a lot of time to each baking time in the cookbook.  I think I need a thermometer in my oven.  I also need to level the oven because things aren’t baking evenly.  All that being said, the quiche turned out really delicious.  Turns out, adding crème fraîche makes you sound like a professional and have a very light, fluffy, and slightly tart quiche.  So good.  My vision of a fanciful quiche brunch didn’t work out, and I ended up having a little quiche lunch with Jack.  He wouldn’t eat it and was unimpressed with my talk of boulangeries in the Var region of France.  Figures.
