Flamiche au Maroilles - Maroilles Cheese Tart
A Flemish dish that comes from the Aisne region in the north of France. This French appetiser unveils all the character of this cheese made on the local farms. A flamiche is similar to a quiche but originally used bread dough instead of pastry. Now, it refers to a pie crust filled with a custard containing cheese or vegetables (classically it contains leeks) or both. A flamiche can be made without a top crust, like a pizza.
