Cormack’s Deli’s Spinach Quiche

Tastemaker
By Eric Cox | July 13, 2019

A hearty wedge of the made-from-scratch spinach quiche offers a lighter and totally to-die-for alternative to Cormack’s Deli’s cornucopia of diverse and tantalizing sandwich offerings. For those who don’t know, quiche is like a tasty, eggy pie with cheese and a feather-light pastry crust. Cormack’s iteration is ultra-light — almost like a custard. But, it holds together beautifully and has a deliciously creamy texture. Dark green spinach rises to the top during baking, giving the pie a golden brown/green crust on top, which adds even more flavor to the subtle hint of provolone and cheddar cheeses baked into the mixture. Cormack’s cooks patiently add more egg/cheese mixture as the concoction rises while cooking, which prevents overflows. The result is a helium-light pie that has a tremendously luxurious mouthfeel. A small side salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing provides a crunchy contrast, its Mandarin orange slices and sliced grapes heralding a welcome flavor pop — all told, a fantastic alternative to a heavy lunch. Enjoy a slice on the Petoskey’s restaurant’s veranda overlooking Little Traverse Bay. You won’t be disappointed. Open 9:30am–6pm Monday through Friday. (231) 347-7570, www.cormacksdeli.com
