Notes

Quiche, a staple of the Alsace-Lorraine region of France, was so popular in the United States in the early eighties that it spawned a 1982 satirical book on male masculinity called Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche. Yet few men—or women, for that matter—can resist this savory tart, as colorful as it is flavorful.
