Mushroom Quiche with Onion Marmalade and Cheese
Quiche is a classical dish is popular all over the world. Even back in chef school at Warwick Chef School, I fell in love with the French cooking. At all my jobs during my chef career I made quiche somewhere - for some occasion. I cannot recall working somewhere and not be making a quiche. You can be so creative with quiche and quiche is a wonderful way to work out ingredients which could soon expire. At the nursery I have made quite a lot of lovely varieties, using the onion marmalade in a few variations. Onion marmalade is a good choice to keep in your fridge if you love eating quiches.
