Portugal's most delicious, sweet pastry treat! 

THE HISTORY OF PASTEL DE NATA 

 

The Pastel de Nata is the king of Portuguese pastries, the worlds most renowned Portuguese custard tart.

It was developed by monks of the Jeronimos Monastery in Portugal before the 18th century. The monks and nuns used egg whites to starch their clothes and used the leftover egg yolks to develop a host of desserts, the most famous being the Pastel de Nata.

With the decline of the monastic system in Portugal, the monasteries required other sources of income for support and began selling the pastries to raise money.

 

These tasty creamy custard tarts are a beloved national favourite and are usually accompanied by great tasting freshly ground Bica (coffee).
