PASTÉIS DE NATA

In the 18th century, Pastéis de Nata were created in the suburb Belém of Lisbon. Pastéis de Nata are small pudding pastries made with egg yolk, sugar, milk and starch.

The Portuguese pastries have their origin in the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos monastery. It is said that at that time egg whites were used to starch clothes and people were looking for ways to use the remaining yolk. This is how sweet baked goods came into being in many places.

If you desire a culinary excursion to Portugal, you are welcome to try our recipe today.
