Quiches are one of the first things you think about when talking about a savoury platter- that is why I would love to share this basic quiche pastry recipe with you. It is so easy to make and you can freeze the pastry dough, or line the quiche tins and keep it in the freezer until needed.

At most of my chef jobs I had to make quiches - I Would say at almost all of my chef jobs. So this quiche pastry recipe comes a long way with me. It is just the type of fillings that vary all the time.

Quiche is of French origin, and the most common one is Quiche Lorraine- I am very sure somewhere you heard of this one. The classic basic and onion quiche from France. And oh boy, where there is a quiche with bacon inside, you can just imagine they fly first off the table!

Quiche is also such a lovely thing to serve in a picnic basket. And you can play with your fillings. Use off cut ingredients or leftovers. You can for sure turn it into a lovely magnificent meal!
