It seems almost everybody is skeptical when they first hear about this soup. Myself included. Dill Pickle Soup? Hmmm…

Polish in origin and dating back to a time before refrigeration when pickling was a common way to preserve food, this now trending soup is simultaneously creamy and tangy, compelling and comforting. The interesting flavor combination and various textures make for one unique bowl of deliciousness. And, yes, you can enjoy zupa ogĂłrkowa in the summer. The Poles do.

Salmon & Goat Cheese Quiche

Ah yes, more salmon! This time it is the cold-smoked salmon baked in a quiche with goat cheese, fresh chives and dill.

Fresh sniped dill added to the custard.

Pour the herbed mixture of eggs and cream over the goat cheese and salmon layered in the crust.

I use my Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron Tarte Tatin pan for making quiche as well as tarte tatin. This is a great pan!

My ratio for quiche custard is:

  • 5 whole large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups of warm light cream
  • 1 T flour
  • salt and pepper
I beat this with an electric hand mixer.
Bake at 350 for about 1 hour (maybe a little longer).

Uh, oops. How did that get in here?

I’m keeping no secrets from you: I used Trader Joe’s Baking Spray with Flour and Pillsbury Pie Crust 🙂
