Quiche Lorraine on Île St. LouisPosted on May 1, 2011
One of my favorite meals from my trip to Paris last September was a late déjeuner (lunch) D and I had at a cafe on Île St. Louis. The cafe was typical parisienne-small, slightly cramped, yet still quaint and charm.
We ventured into Île St. Louis as I was anxious to seek out Berthillion, Paris’ famous luxury ice cream shop. When we came across the cafe that was located only a few doors down from Berthillion, my stomach reminded me of the fact that we had eaten breakfast hours ago.
D ordered a massive croque-monsieur, a hot ham and cheese grilled sandwich (nothing like the American version), while I decided on a slice of quiche lorraine. Light, but deliciously filling.
As I had not “connected” with Julia recently, I decided to make her version of quiche lorraine last night for dinner along with concombres persilles (parslied cucumbers). While both D and I thought the quiche quite good, it still didn’t have the delicious taste of the one I had on Île St. Louis.
