The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that include food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. This episode, part of the "cheese and eggs" portion of the series, is about quiches. The Frugal Gourmet starts with a Basic Quiche, then moves on to more delectable quiches like an Asparagus Quiche, a Broccoli and Swiss Cheese Quiche, a Seafood Quiche, and a Leek Quiche. He also covers crustless quiches, starting with the basic and moving on to an Onion and Caraway Crustless Quiche and Individual Crustless Quiches. Smith not only cooks, but also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
