The Art of the Mushroom Quiche

Quiche, the elegant French tart with its creamy custard filling, provides a delightful canvas for showcasing the flavors of mushrooms. With their delicate textures and savory notes, mushrooms elevate the classic quiche to a gourmet experience.

Featured Mushrooms:

  • Chanterelle Mushrooms: Prized for their fruity aroma and slightly peppery flavor, chanterelles add a touch of sophistication.
  • Oyster Mushrooms: With their delicate texture and subtle flavor, oyster mushrooms complement the richness of the quiche custard.
  • White Button Mushrooms: Our versatile friend, the white button mushroom, adds a familiar and mild flavor.

Mastering the Mushroom Quiche

Ingredients:

  • Crust:
  • Filling:

Instructions:

  1. Make the crust: In a food processor, pulse together flour and salt. Add butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ice water one tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together. Form a disc, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Prep the filling: Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Sauté the onion in olive oil until softened. Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and are slightly browned.
  3. Blind bake: Roll out chilled dough and fit into a 9-inch tart pan. Prick the bottom with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Whisk the custard: Whisk together eggs, cream, milk, salt, and pepper.
  5. Assemble the quiche: Sprinkle the sautéed mushrooms and Gruyère cheese over the pre-baked crust. Gently pour in the custard.
  6. Bake and enjoy: Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is set and slightly golden. Let cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Tips:

  • Get creative: Experiment with different cheeses like Parmesan, Swiss, or goat cheese.
  • Vegetarian twist: Substitute the Gruyère with smoked Gouda for a delicious vegetarian version.
  • Herb infusion: Add a tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs like thyme or chives to the custard.

  • This study explored Pholiota nameko (P. nameko) polysaccharide fractions, PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80, purified by gradient concentrations of ethanol (40%, 60%, and 80% (v/v)). The physicochemical properties, functional group composition, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant ability were determined. The results indicate that the polysaccharide contents of PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80 are 45.12%, 78.04%, and 72.22%, respectively, while the β-glucan, protein, and uronic acid contents are 20.20%, 12.20%, and 10.15%, respectively; 11.24%, 14.53%, and 26.94%; and 5.99%, 7.73%, and 3.78%. Furthermore, PNP-60 has better moisture absorption, while PNP-80 has better antioxidant ability and H2O2-injury resistance activity

  • In May 1950 my husband undertook a pilgrimage to remote Serignan to see the Fabre water-colors, and he picked out more than a dozen for our book. Two years later, finding himself again in Paris, he called once more on Professor Heim, who by now had become the Director of the Museum National, a worthy successor in that great post to the illustrious Buffon. Indeed, he sits at Buffon's very table, in Buffon's very room, where the elegant i8th century furnishings have remained unchanged, the walls adorned with the graceful i8th century oils of Jean-Jacques Bachelier, depicting the birds of the several continents.
