France Cuisine and Food

Local Cuisine

Quiche Lorraine
Quiche Lorraine consists of a shell of crisp pastry, filled with beaten eggs, cream cheese, seasoning, and chopped bacon. The tart is backed for about 45 minutes in the oven until it is golden brown. This is a traditional dish from Lorraine, a region in the northeastern France.

"Pot on fire" is the literal translation of this French phrase. Culinarily it refers to a French dish of meat and vegetables slowly cooked in water. The resulting rich broth is served with croutons as a first course, followed by an entree of the meat and vegetables. Any combination of meat and vegetables can be used and the mix varies according to the region. If the meat has marrow-filled bones, the marrow can be served on toast as another course preceding the entree.

French for "pot of cream," this dessert consists of a creamy-rich custard prepared and served in tiny (about 3-ounce) pot-shaped cups. Though the classic flavoring is vanilla, pot de crθme comes in many variations including chocolate and coffee.
