I wanted to get this one out before the last of the chard and other winter vegetables disappeared, to be replaced by summer ones. Although I make the quiche with chard, it can also be made using spinach. Over here we have two very distinct growing periods, as it is warm enough to have quite abundant winter and summer crops. It is a little different to many parts of Britain and certainly to where I was brung up.
Last week I mentioned, albeit briefly, that my local Spanish friends think I and indeed the British are a bit eccentric and often comment that we do everything the opposite to them. This is almost certainly inspired by the fact the the British drive on the “wrong” side of the road. Over the years I have come to realise that it is much more than that, in fact the British do many things the opposite way to what Spanish people do (a case of versa vice perhaps?).
Firstly Britain is not alone in driving on the left, there are more than 70 other countries that do likewise. Secondly and strangely considering that Spain is a Catholic Country, driving on the left was a Popish edict of 1300. They have obviously chosen to ignore the Pope on that one!
Not to take up too many pages on driving…………
……….And so back to the quiche, and something both Spanish and Brits seem to be able to agree on. The word is written the same in both English and Spanish and, according to the dictionary at least, the pronunciation should be the same too! This one tastes great and I hope you like it……..
