Today is National Quiche Lorraine Day. Did you know that Quiche Lorraine is the original form of quiche, from the French region of – what else – Lorraine. If you knew that already, then like me the chances are you were wrong. During medieval times, the Germans in Lothringen had an open pie, the Kuchen. The word Kuchen eventually became Kische. When France conquered Lothringen, they lay claim to the German’s Kische, renaming the dish Lorraine and changing the spelling of Kische to the more standard French spelling, Quiche.
