LYL:Quiche for Food Revolution Day


Over the past three years, those of us who were working through Around my French Table did our bit by participating virtually in Food Revolution Day – a day of global action created by Jamie Oliver and the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation to engage and inspire people of all ages to learn about food and how to cook it. This year, the main goal is to get everyone, everywhere to join Jamie’s revolution– together we can make a big difference and can change our food system for the better!

As a Food Revolution Ambassador for Canada, my job is not only to host events on, and leading up to, Food Revolution Day but to encourage others to as well. As many people are perhaps not able to do an “in person” event, I thought it might be fun to get some global participation with the Cook the Book Fridays crew taking part virtually, just like we did in 20132014, and 2015).

This year, the theme is #FeedtheFuture and Jamie’s put together what he’s calling a starter Pack of recipes(available in UK and US measures) – ten delicious, nutritionally balanced recipes, each covering a different skill and technique that can give anyone the confidence to cook good, real, healthy meals for themselves and their families, for now and the future. Jamie has spoken about the idea of ten recipes to save your life since his TED talk in 2010.

For Cook the Book Fridays on Friday May 20th 2016, we’re all going to be cooking the dish we’ve deemed a “must know” starter French recipe – QUICHE! David’s recipe for Ham, Blue Cheese and Pear quiche (p 155) includes a pastry crust recipe – something that really should be in everyone’s repertoire whether they are French or not!

On Friday May 20th blog about the quiche. Share it on all your social media channels using the #FoodRevolution, #FeedtheFuture, #MyParisKitchen and #CooktheBookFridays hashtags!

        1. I have noticed that sometimes it seems like there are two separate posts for Nicole, with the same content, when I look at my WordPress Reader. Perhaps that was the problem?


          1. You know I saw that it double posted my last post but only in some places. When I go to update it to remove extra content, it isn’t there. Not sure what is going on.


        1. Oh, so sorry. I didn’t realize your comment about a blog not opening was for me! Yes, that was a problem for a while when I didn’t renew my domain name, but now it sounds like the links have resolved themselves (hopefully). They make it very hard for you to get out of a renewing charge! 😉

      1. Kara, like Mary, I am unable to leave a comment.
        So I’ll comment here 🙂
        I love the cornmeal crust too, and my quiche took a longer to bake as well for the filling to be fully cooked. Nice quiche, but very rich!


        1. It was tricky to find, but you have to set up name, email, password, then click on the checkbox (presumably to agree to terms), and then click on the arrow below.

          Looks like you have to do the same each time, unless you save the password.


      2. I was finally able to post a comment by clicking on the Facebook button (which then used my Facebook account). Hope this helps, Mary


          1. All right, Mary, here’s what I do. I put my cursor in “Name” which makes a couple other text boxes available. Then, I select all that black near “Terms of Service” and what not. You’ll see that the little white box is a checkbox for “I’d rather post as a guest.” I enter my info and voilà! (I think the black background is at odds with the template’s black text in that section, making it difficult to navigate.)


  1. I finally visited all postings today, all with great looking (and delish) quiches! Looking forward to June!
