Real Men Eat Quiche (and Whatever Else They Blooming Well Like!)
Behold my quiche, beloved of the Lovelygrey boys. It comes in several different varieties depending on what's in the fridge but today's version contained smoked salmon and a mixture of vegetables - PSB impulsively bought on the veg stall at Trago Mills, onion, leeks and a red pepper sneaked in when Louis wasn't looking.
The basis of my recipe is this Chard and Cheddar Tart from Nigel Slater which is good in its own right I've kept the cheddar in the pastry and in the egg custard filling, also using parmesan to replace the pecorino in the original version. Who says that cheese and seafood don't go? Sometimes I recall that people are pleasantly surprised with this combination on cookery programmes.
