Kachkéis is as Luxembourgish as it gets! A stringy melting cheese with the texture of glue. Luxembourgers love this cheese, so it’s no surprise that our Luxembourgish comic superhere ‘Superjhemp’ thrives on that stuff!
I’ve been thinking about picnic dishes lately and the idea for a quiche with Kachkéis sprung into mind. I’ve combined the pungent Kachkéis with sweet leek – a vegetable that bestows this lovely quiche with a few vitamins. This quiche tastes great straight for the oven, but is just as well eaten cold, as the Kachkéis flavour will be even more prominent when cold. I think Superjhemp would love it!
This recipe was created as part of my “Recipes for Staying Home” show, to flatten the curve during the 2020 Covid-19 outbreak. The concept is to inspire people to cook comfort dishes at home – I show basic recipes that can be adapted with all kinds of other ingredients. You can watch the episode here.
This is a recipe from my cookbook ‘Flavours of Home’.
