Deep leek and potato quiche


Deep leek and potato quiche
The French make a "tourte" that is smaller and deeper than a normal quiche. This recipe makes the most of this difference: it has plenty of texture and flavour, with bacon, potatoes, leeks, two different cheeses, and an egg and cream filling poured over.

Stage 1 - 7 min.
Deep leek and potato quiche
We'll be using a deep 8 inch (20 cm) dessert ring, rather than a tin or mould for this quiche.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Remarks
If spring onions are out of season, use a normal onion. In this case, add a touch of green, if possible, with some chopped parsley at stage 10.

For the two cheeses, if you don't have Comté or Cheddar, use another cheese of your choice, but preferably a hard-paste type, with a strong flavour, such as Parmesan or mature mimolette.
Keeping
A day or two ing the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Crème brulée
Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
