Did you know it? The creation of Quiche Lorraine dates back to the 16th century. Originally, quiche Lorraine was prepared in a skillet and didn't contain any meat. Later on, quiche was composed of bread dough, smoked pork belly, eggs and heavy cream. It was said that Charles III, the Duke of Lorraine, loved it so much that he almost went broke! The more modern round shape appeared in 1736 thanks to a chef working for Stanislas, Duke of Lorraine. Lorraine introduced this comforting, creamy dish to the French later on. A real success!
