When you think french pastries, sweet tarts, cakes and cookies pop up on your taste buds. But Pistache also works hard on its savory menu! And we started with variations around the traditional quiche (“keesh”), an hearty tart, made of pastry crust filled with a savory custard, cheese, meat, fish or and vegetables.
To add a little touch of fun, we made our quiches variable-geometry : a combo of asparagus and orange looks great as a rectangle and the combination tuna-spring peas-mint-red pepper is very nice as a square (or a triangle, we are still working on it…). The traditional circle molds are not banished, and fit perfectly to a cherry tomatoes-basil and mustard tart.
And since we cherish the regional french recipes, be ready for a delicious pissaladière (a pizza-like tart from Nice, covered with caramelized onions, anchovies and olives). Will it be round, square, triangle? You will know very soon!
