Pastel de Nata Story
The recipe for this delicacy dates back over 300 years to Belém, located west of Lisbon. Pastéis de nata were created by monks in the Jerónimos Monastery, (today known for being a UNESCO World Heritage Site). At that time, the nuns and monks used egg whites to starch their clothes, and the left over egg yolks became a major ingredient in desserts.
The monks began selling pastéis de nata when there was a need for funds to support the monastery. When the monastery eventually closed in 1834, the recipe was sold to the owners of the Fábrica de Pastéis de Belém, which opened in 1837 and is still the most popular place to buy them around Lisbon. The shop is located a short three-minute walk from the Jerónimos Monastery so definitely worth a visit if you ever end up in Lisbon!
