Quadrillage From the French word quadrille, meaning marked with squares or rectangles. In cooking, it refers to the square charred marks that are the result of a grill's hot grate "branding" the food.  
Queso Fresco A white Mexican cheese, similar in flavor and texture to feta. It softens when heated, but doesn't melt. It's best crumbled on top of dishes like tamales and tacos.  
Quick Bread A non-yeasted, somewhat dense cake leavened with eggs and chemical agents such as baking powder or baking soda, mixed quickly, and baked. Quick breads are most often baked in loaf pans and are excellent for gift giving. Popular varieties include banana bread and zucchini bread, as well as muffins, popovers, and biscuits.
