Real Men Eat Quiche

I was working the Saint Micheal’s Farmers Market two Saturdays ago, when a couple approached my booth. They had been advised by a friend to seek me out and pick up the “best chicken pot pies ever.” While we were chatting the gentleman looked down at the table and spotted the hand quiche that I also had available. He became very animated, telling me about the article in the Wall Street Journal that very morning heralding the return of Quiche!

If you missed the story, titled “Make America Quiche Again” you can read it here. Charlotte Druckman humorously details how and when egg pie fell out of favor with the American dining public and reveals that quiche is on it’s way back, appearing on menus everywhere. I myself have noticed a surge in the interest and desire for quiche and I am thrilled to offer one each week, in hopes of adding to its popularity.

This week, I’m featuring one of Charlotte’s recipes: Roasted Broccoli Quiche. She also offers a fun Tater Skin Quiche that I intend to try out in my home kitchen and hope to offer you this fall. Also on the menu are summer appropriate Zucchini Soup and a favorite grain salad. Hope you’ll find something tasty for your table. See the complete Menu for July 18.

Note: Butterfield Gourmet will be closed for vacation the week of August 1.

Ahhh, summer, lazy summer! What to eat June 23-27, 2014

I truly love summer and the days lacking in schedule…our son is away for a week and the house is quiet. For me and my husband, a week like this usually translates to late dinners consisting of seafood and salads or simply cheese, bread and wine. I also have the opportunity to experiment with vegetarian dishes and light fare that our son does not prefer. Here’s a sampling of what I consider an adult menu…
I am limiting pick-up to just Monday and Tuesday this week, so if you want dinner for Monday, please reply by 4pm Sunday. For Tuesday pickup, I need to receive your order by Noon on Monday.  To order, please use the Contact tab (or email butterfieldgourmet@gmail.com) and tell me which items you would like and what day you would like to pick up at my Preston Commons location.

Pick up is from 4-6 pm, Monday or Tuesday at 8115 Preston Rd, Suite 140, inside the Cafe Gourmet on the Go shop

Salad: Fresh Fruit Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette – field greens, nectarines, strawberries and blueberries with toasted almonds.  $15 serves 2-3 GF

Meatless Entree: Raw Zucchini Salad with Lemon & Parmesan – no way would my kid eat this one, but I think it’s better than a bowl of pasta.  $20 serves 4 GF

Quiche: Arugula & Mushroom with Italian cheeses.  $20/pie serves 4-6**

Entree: Fried Brown Rice with Shrimp & Sugar Snap Peas – light Asian fare is not always easy but this dish is just about 400 calories per serving! $30 serves 4. GF

Dessert: French Lemon Tart – silky lemon custard begs to be topped with sweetened whipped cream! $20/pie

  • GF crust is available for the quiche or any of the pot pies. Additional charge applies.

Coming next week:  Lots of pies and salads that are so lovely to take to all of your July 4th celebrations!  Quantities will be limited so order early.
