This Leek and Gruyère Quiche recipe was inspired by the famous chef Jaques Pépin and our current love of “Emily in Paris’. We our excited to bring our rendition of this classic french dish.
Firstly, we love a challenge here at Fork’nFlipflops and recently we have been inspired to make French recipes. A delicious challenge to take on. We looked to two staples in French cuisine for our inspiration. First, the buttery and rich classic french dish, Quiche; and of course the great Chef Jacques Pépin. Pépin has been making great French recipes for years. He has inspired many other great chefs in the kitchen and surely he has inspired us to bring you this recipe. Hopefully it will inspire you to try this recipe and other international dishes. Without further a due this is our version of this traditional French indulgence.
Secondly, the Leek and Gruyère Quiche is a great meal that can be pre-made and stored in the freezer for lazy days. All it takes is popping it into the oven and in 20 minutes your have a delicious gourmet meal. Whether you are inspired by the Great Chef’s of France, the beautiful city of love or a cheesy T.V show just know this Quiche is freaking delicious! With it’s buttery, flaky crust and cheesy custard filling it is a great staple for your recipe arsenal.
Lastly, this Leek and Gruyère Quiche came out more delicious than we could have imagined. The gruyère cheese is really a perfect match for the delicate flavor of the leeks. Leeks are in you know? You heard it here, leeks are about to be the new trendy ingredient. Okay…maybe that’s a bit of a reach but according to the new Season of Netflix’s hit show “Emily in Paris” “the leek is complex, mysterious, versatile,” and honestly we couldn’t agree more. We’ve also longed for travel and with this pandemic lingering on we’ve decided to pretend we are in Paris making this delicious recipe and binge watching both seasons of “Emily in Paris.” If you haven’t watched it we also recommend you do (even if we do have a love/ hate relationship with Emily Cooper). So have a weekend of T.V and cooking and indulge a bit.
