A Quiche By Any Other Name

Nick MalgieriComment

A reader has asked: Does the term quiche refer to all tarts that aren’t sweet?

A: No. Strictly speaking a quiche is a bacon and custard tart (no cheese, please) that hails from the Lorraine province in Northeastern France. By extension many savory tarts with custard and other elements in the filling are also referred to as quiches.
