Quiche Lorraine or Lothringen Kuchen a history of a modern day classic

Today is Quiche Lorraine Day. Did you know this dish originated in Germany? According to  foodreferences.com ; "Although quiche is now a classic dish of French  cuisine, quiche actually originated in Germany, in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen, under German rule, and which the French later renamed Lorraine. The word ‘quiche’ is from the German ‘Kuchen’, meaning cake. The original ‘quiche Lorraine’ was an open pie with a filling consisting of an egg and cream custard with smoked bacon. It was only later that cheese was added to the quiche Lorraine. Add onions and you have quiche Alsacienne. The bottom crust was originally made from bread dough, but that has long since evolved into a short-crust". So we are wondering "Do real men eat quiche"?  For a basic quiche recipe check out this link.  Subscribe to the blog for a multitude of recipes, tips and tricks. personal chefs and event catering Miami + Miami Beach + Fort Lauderdale + Palm Beach info@yadachef.c

The Most Popular Cocktail Recipe in Every State Right Now, According to Google

by  NAOMI TOMKY PUBLISHED: MAY 14, 2020 What are you drinking in Arkansas? Who’s sipping what in South Dakota or Washington? We know that Americans are  buying more alcohol than normal while they’re stuck at home  — presumably at least in part because they can’t stop by the bar on their way home for a little happy hour — but what are people actually making with all that alcohol they’re buying? Google did some digging and just released their list of the drinks that people in each state  uniquely searched for in the last three weeks  — meaning that they search for that drink more than anywhere else in the U.S. So, what kinds of things are people mixing for themselves? A lot of  Old Fashioneds , mostly. Washington, D.C., Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Virginia, and Washington State all searched for the drink. It’s simplicity definitely helps in making it a good quarantine cocktail — you just need whiskey, sugar, and bitters. Get the recipe :  How To Make a Cla

Is Meat Essential? Why Keeping America's Processing Plants Open Is Causing Controversy

Factories around the country have closed due to COVID-19 outbreaks, but the government is promising things will be back to normal within weeks. By  Mike Pomranz   May 07, 2020 Food is essential; everyone ( almost ) can agree on that. But without a family farm, the vast majority of Americans require other people to supply that food—meaning these workers could be considered  as essential as the food itself . But is meat, specifically, essential? And should hundreds of Americans be putting their health at risk so that other Americans can eat meat? As coronavirus continues to plague the country, the answer has proved surprisingly difficult. Some things are certain: America’s meat supply is under pressure. Across the country, COVID-19 has  shut down processing plants  due to staff illnesses, leading grocers  to limit meat purchases  and leaving at least one major fast food chain, Wendy’s, with burger shortages. Another certainty: The executive branch wants this resolved quickly. On April 28

An Incurable Disease Is Threatening European Olive Trees

'Olive tree leprosy' could have a catastrophic effect on the future of olives in Greece, Italy, and Spain. By  Jelisa Castrodale   May 08, 2020 Because the agricultural industry in parts of Europe hasn't had enough challenges to contend with lately, an incurable bacterium called xylella fastidiosa is again threatening to kill hundreds of thousands of olive trees in  Italy ,  Spain , and parts of Greece. And according to some researchers, if the disease continues to spread throughout olive groves, it could cause €20 billion-plus in lost revenue in those three countries in the next 50 years. Xylella fastidiosa was first detected in Italy seven years ago, and an estimated one million trees have already died from its effects. According to plant virologist Maria Saponari, it probably came into the country on ornamental coffee plants. "This pathogen likes a warm environment,"  she told  NPR. "And so, unfortunately, it found a very suitable condition to establish he
