Wood Fired Veggie Quiche

Aug 31, 2023Posted by guestchefPrint

Andrea Colognese of the Jamestown Bread Project has created this wood fired veggie quiche that is magically rich and flakey, but light at the same time. It is a great way to use garden fresh vegetables and the residual heat from your oven the morning after a pizza party.
