The concept worked and in the first few months The Nook struggled to keep up with demand as the quiches were so time consuming to make.
They remained popular even when the hype from the tv show calmed down, tho not as many sales.
Early January 2015 The Nook closed it's doors for a week to decorate and carry out maintenance and, during this time, I put forward the suggestion of changing the quiche flavours. I felt it would be great to start the New Year with a change.
After some taste testing we went with:
Bacon, Spinach and Mushroom
Smoked Haddock and Watercress
Broccoli, Goats Cheese, Cashew Nuts and Pesto.
The new flavours went down well on re-opening. There was the odd customer that moaned because the vegetarian had changed, or turned their nose up at the thought of smoked haddock in a quiche but overall sales are back up and The Nook remains to be as busy as ever.
Below are our Smoked Haddock and Watercress square quiches being prepared.

And here are the Bacon, Spinach and Mushroom. Our in house baker Vanessa tends to make between 32 and 40 per day.

Filled with free range turkey, bacon, stuffing balls, cranberry sauce and leeks the concept worked brilliantly served with potatoes, peas and brussel sprouts.
