Food in Film: Quiche

Blogging from A to Z Challenge

A food addict and connoisseur of tasteful films reviews Food in Film, starring...

… Quiche

They say real men don't eat quiche, but if that's the case, James Bond is not a real man... in A View to a Kill (1985) he even makes quiche.

Et voila. Quiches des Cabinet.

Sounds interesting.
Mmm. What is it?

JAMES BOND
An omelet.


Scene: James Bond makes quiche.

My husband doesn't make quiche, but he does make omelets. After the kids moved out, he took over the tradition of serving breakfast in bed on Mother's Day. He serves me an omelet with a "quiche" on the lips.

Notice how attractively he arranged the fruit. I lack that flare. Tomorrow's post will have more on that topic.

If you have a favorite quiche recipe, please share!

  1. I don't know if I've ever even eaten quiche. I suppose I haven't lived!

  3. Hi Trudy - love quiche ... but haven't made any for years - had one recently - it was delicious ... I love them. Clever - well done and good for James Bond being able to conjure a quiche straight from the oven - that's what I need to do! Cheers Hilary

    1. I like what you said about James Bond conjuring a quiche. It looks so nicely decorated, even, straight out of the oven. Like little oven elves were in there putting on the finishing touches. (I need some of those.)

  4. I like quiche. So delicious! James Bond is very cool, but I'm not a fan of Roger's version.

    1. Sean Connery is my favorite James Bond. All others pale.

  5. I'd need the props person to pop one in the oven for me so I could waltz in and take the credit, so no recipes here.

    1. Good idea! I want a props person too... but only if whatever I pull out of the oven is edible.

  6. I am a chef by trade, and I've always refused to make quiches! Scrambled egg in a pastry case! Not for me.

    Let's ramble!

    1. Since you are a chef by trade, I'm hoping you will drop by to comment on tomorrow's post regarding food preparation and presentation.

  7. I am a quiche fan. I make a crustless quiche with crumbled breakfast sausage, cheddar cheese and diced tart apple. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

    1. I don't think I've had apple in a quiche. That sounds interesting... and yummy!

  8. Quiche is really just an omelette with a bit more thrown in (which is why you need the pie crust to support the weight!) I used to make them more when the kids were at home - it stretched how far a few eggs could go and was a lot easier to serve!

    1. You're right, quiche is easier to serve than a bunch of omelets! I've only made quiche once, and I think that was before kids came along.

    1. It's the weekend now, is the quiche in the oven yet?

  10. Love your quiche on the lips comment - very funny. Roger is my favourite comedic Bond but Pierce Brosnan is the true James for me. I wonder where that saying about real men not eating quiche even came from.

    1. I was hoping someone would catch the humor with quiche on the lips! For last year's A to Z, I used the letter K for "Kiss me quick, and don't slobber". That kept coming to my mind while writing this post... "Quiche me quick..."
