All of you are certainly aware of the fact that the name “Food de Fa Fa” is a clin d’oeil to the worldwide hit “Fou de Fa Fa” performed by the French underground band “Le vol du Concorde” (don’t know it? Check it out at… so you've probably asked yourself many times: where is the French food??? Well, let me correct this oversight with an authentic recipe of quiche lorraine.

You can either buy ready-made puff pastry, or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, make the crust yourself with:
180 g (1 ¾ cups) flour
100 g (½ cup) butter
1 egg
¼ cup of water
Mix all the ingredients together and let the dough stand for a few minutes.

Second step: the filling! Here are the ingredients:
200 g (½ lb) of bacon (we used Applegate Farms)
50 g (½ cup) flour
2-3 eggs
¼ l (1 cup) sour cream
1 glass (½ cup + 2 tablespoons, precisely!) of milk
150 g of gruyère cheese
Salt, pepper, ground nutmeg.

Cut the bacon in strips and sautee’ them in some butter and oil.
In a bowl, mix the flour with the eggs, the sour cream and the milk. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.

Now, roll out the dough and transfer it into a buttered pan.

Cut the gruyère cheese in slices and arrange them on the crust. Add the bacon. Pour the egg, flour and sour cream batter on top of everything.

Cook in the oven at 375oF for about 30-40 min or until golden on top.

Et voila’, very easy! Enjoy warm with a side salad.
