Title: Quiche with Leak and Corn from Orange is the New Black
Director: Galina Reznikov RED
Cast of ingredients 🙂
For the pie crust: 2 cups of flour, 12 spoons of butter, 10 spoons of iced water, salt.
For the filling: 1 corn cob, 2 leeks (directly from Litchfield’s vegetable garden), 4 spoons of heavy cream, 4 eggs, 2 ounces of grated cheddar cheese, butter, salt and pepper. Sage leaves, seed oil.
Writer’s Note: I’ll proceed with the preparation just like Red would do, but you can also use a packaged pie crust and skip to the filling part of the recipe.
INT. LITCHFIELD’S FREEZER – 30 MINUTES BEFORE
To be sure to prepare a perfect dough cut the butter into cubes and put it in the freezer for thirty minutes with flour, water and the mixer’s blade.
INT. LITCHFIELD’S KITCHEN – CONTINUED
Just like for Twin Peaks
cherry pie crust pie flour, salt and butter have to mixed together and then add four spoons of iced water.
The consistency will always have to look like flour with cold and hard pieces of butter even when more water is added till when you pinch some of the dough will stick together.
It depends on the flour and butter that you’ll use, but it should take 10 spoons overall. It’s very important to try not to touch the flour with hands too much, because the hands’ warmth will melt the butter! Spoon the dough in a bag and work it till it becomes a ball (see the pic).
INT. LITCHFIELD’S FRIDGE- 60 MINUTES
Put in the fridge for at least an hour.
INT. LITCHFIELD’S KITCHEN – IN THE MEANTIME
Slice the leak and sauté it in butter till it softens, then cut the corn out of the cob after you cooked it. Mix everything together.
Beat the eggs with the heavy cream and the grated cheddar cheese then add also the vegetables and season with salt and pepper.
Before rolling the crust let it rest out of the fridge for twenty minutes.
INT. LITCHFIELD’S KITCHEN – 20 MINUTES LATER
Roll the pie crust and put it in a buttered pie shell, pour the filling.
INT. LITCHFIELD’S OVEN – 30-35 MINUTES
Bake it at 400 F for 30-35 minutes.
INT. LITCHFIELD’S KITCHEN – LATER
When the quiche is cooling, fry the sage leaves using hot seed oil.
Feel FREE to change the vegetables based on the ones you find!
