When I first came to France as an au-pair, the only thing I could cook were scrambled eggs. Don't laugh at me: my mom has always been a great cook and I felt a little bit intimidated, like I could never compare to her. Later on, she told me that when she saw me off to my first trip to France, she was really worried for me: how on earth was I going to take care of such a huge family (34 people, grand parents, parents and children all mixed up) when I didn't know a first thing about cooking? I wasn't really bothered until the first time I saw them all together - 34 people is really huge, you know... But I was lucky: they didn't really expect any culinary miracles from me, and they preferred to teach me their ways. It was the Grandmother who thaught me patiently everything she knew: the secrets of the best ratatouille, an incredible chocolate gateau that always disappeared with the speed of light, and the famous quiche. Even now, 8 years later, I still make a quiche at least twice a month, and I think I've became quite an expert. But I must admit, I never really experimented with the various fillings. Until now. When my fiancé brought some leek from the Farmers market, it was the perfect occasion to try something new. I've just updated my classic quiche recipe, added a little bit of this and that, and then enjoyed the results of my hard work. (You can find the printable recipe here). It was really scrumptious, and it has motivated me to search for more new and unexpected flavor combos.
