National Quiche Lorraine Day Date in the current year: May 20, 2016

National Quiche Lorraine Day May 20 is National Quiche Lorraine Day. This great dish is considered as French speciality, but it has got German origin.

Savory quiche appeared in Alsace-Lorraine, a region of northeastern France, that borders on Germany. Over centuries the region was in German control, which is essential in determining the origin of quiche. When the dish appeared, the region was a German province Lothringen. This can explain why the French word “quiche” evolved from German “Küchen”, that means cake.

Original quiche Lorraine was made on a bread dough for bottom crust and filled with custard and bacon. Later cheese was also used to make quiche. Actually quiche is like pizza: everyone can create the unique combination of ingredients to make the dish of one's dream. Use cheese, seafood, meats, vegetables for the filling in such time-proved combinations as tomato, anchovy and olives; crab, lobster and shrimp; bacon, ham and sausage. Serve it for dinner with salad, bread and white wine to celebrate National Quiche Lorraine Day.
