Chef's tip

If you don't like the sweet-savoury contrast, feel free to leave out the raisins. You can always replace them with some walnuts, if you prefer.

Serving suggestion

This dish goes well with any kind of main course, be it fish-, meat- or vegetable-based. We suggest not serving it with pasta or rice so as not to exceed the recommended daily carbohydrate intake.

Wine selection

Chardonnay, Pinot grigio or Riesling.

Dish history

Savoury pastries (or quiches, in French) are incredibly versatile dishes: cut into cubes they make perfect party food, a great buffet component, an exquisite accompaniment to a drink during a soiree, a delicious appetiser.. and they can also make the ideal 'picnic dish' for an outing, for a lunch at work or even for your children's break at school. What's also great about them, is that they can be tweaked according to the cook's personal taste: so get started and create your own variations!
