Smoked Turkey Filo Quiche with onion, potato, pinenuts, gruyere & sage

Some months ago I saw a friend make quiches with filo pastry and thought it was a much better alternative to the sometimes heavier pastry option. Last night therefore I decided to make a new quiche that I have never thought of before and I had 3 ingredients that I wanted to base this around.

Filo Pastry – Smoked Turkey – Gruyere Cheese

What I wanted to do with this quiche was to find complimenting flavours to go with the above so I went for the following: 

Filo pastry РSmoked Turkey РCaramelized Onions РCooked potato РRoasted Pinenuts РGrated Gruyere Cheese Рegg/cr̬me fraiche/garlic/sage РGrated Parmesan

The result was stunning I got to say and it was a real melt in your mouth dinner…

Damn you Amsterdam 'Summer'

It is with much regret that I have some sad news on the Rooftop garden front

This Summer has been the wettest on record and my tomatoes just could not survive in these sorrowful conditions...if any on us could come ot think of it

I learnt alot this summer in respect to gardening & it is definitely something I will continue next year. I feel if i had of got off to a good start back in April things might of been different....but next year it is my intention to have a full crop of tomatoes by the middle of July so the lessons have been learnt.

But until then you can check out my sorrowful toms. As you can see the trees were full of little cherry tomatoes but the weather just worked against us
