Bleu Crimini Quiche


My new obsession with bleu cheese begins. Well I have liked it for quite a while now but had yet to cook with it. Growing up I hated it, for that fact it had all those moldy veins which freaked me out beyond belief. And that it was such a strong flavor but now I love the flavor and kept eating huge chunks of it straight while baking this.
 The online magazine NEET emailed me during the summer asking if I wanted to be featured in the September issue along with a few other bloggers for their special 'comfort food' section. After clicking on their website I of course said yes, falling in love with all the photography they had put in their magazine before. If only it was in print too! The issue just came out, so go check it out! HERE is the link, y'all.

Honey & Jam and Desserts for Breakfast are the two other amazing bloggers featured. Having been obsessed with both of those blogs for months now, it is really an honor to be shown next to them.
 Hannah's tomato soup is such a beautiful photo, the minute I saw it on her flickr I literally said out lough, 'oh my god.' The styling, lighting, that essential Hannah touch that makes me immediately know she took the photo; everything works. Her photos have such an amazing golden glow. And it is a vegetarian recipe, so even better! At the tasting salon featuring Claire Ptak and Andrea Blum, which was super amazing and will tell you all about later, the first course was a tomato bread gazpacho. I think it was my first time every having a cold soup, and it was so great tasting. The tomato were just picked from the garden and so were the herbs that went into it I believe. 
 Stephanie of Desserts for Breakfast made and photographed the caramel apple crumble. Like seriously? you made a crumble even better by adding caramel to it. Genius! After reading the article about her in the magazine, I realized she lived so close to me, very close. What a small world! Her photos are always really amazing too, did you see her fig, mascarpone and pistachio tart post? A thing of beauty. Once I get some more figs, I want to make that right away.

Congratulations! Very glad your photography is getting the attention it deserves. I know you must put a lot of thought and time into each set of photos!

That looks insane! I have just yesterday purchased a cookbook which has Scandinavian recipes by the Nordic Bakery in London. I was thinking to do a blue cheese tart. You have inspired me!

Gorgeous shots.

Read the Blog Name and know I would love it, because it's Butter. Plus, this pie looks extravagant and rustic at the same time...

Blue cheese and shrooms in a buttery crust: to die for! And the shot of the cremini in the bucket is gorg. Congrats on your feature in NEET, well deserved!

You have a lovely snippet and bio featured in N.E.E.T! I'm happy to have been introduced to your blog. Even more so to another new method of marrying two of my favorite flavors: woodsy mushrooms and earth blue cheese! Looking forward to a slice.

Cheers,

I love a good quiche, and the flavors in this one seem like they'd be complex and bold. My quiches are usually fairly subtle, so I'm anxious to try this. Your photos are wonderful, glad to have discovered your blog!
