Roquefort quiche

Our Mediterranean culinary adventure continues in another European country whose cuisine is famous worldwide, thanks to some outstanding dishes in terms of taste, colour and aroma: we are, of course, in France searching amongst its hearty regional specialties. For this recipe we have chosen something from a particularly well-known region - namely, Provence. Rich in world famous cheeses, our quiche hails from this corner of France, a savoury tart with a base of Roquefort, a perfect recipe for so many occasions, whether as a starter or main dish. Take care to use high quality cheese and, most importantly, our advice is to pay particular attention to the preparation of the shortcrust pastry, essential for a top quality result.
