A great simple dish to make is the lovely quiche. I make two quiches in this show. One for the kids which is a simple cheese quiche and one for my friend Alice and I. A Red Chard, Dried Cranberries, Goat Cheese and Pine Nut quiche. The setting is our beautiful home in malibu where we can get fresh eggs from chickens down the street and fresh red chard from my backyard garden.
