Despite popular belief, the first ever quiche came from Germany. However, Quiche is now a traditional French dish. Quiche Lorraine is centuries old, and originates from the south of Germany. Lorraine is a northern province in France, very close to Germany. Lorraine, formerly Lothringen was under German control before World War I. Which is why the dialect in Lorraine was more Germanic than French. After WWI, France annexed Lorraine and quiche along with it. Now quiche is an integral part of French culture.
