After yesterday’s macarons we’re moving into heavier subject matter, although not necessarily French.
Pastéis de Nata, or Portuguese egg tarts, delight the senses with their creamy custard texture, flaky crust, touch of blistered beauty and dust of cinnamon. Although I’m posting this on a Friday evening, hopefully a few of you are reading this in the morning with a café — the preferred accompaniment for enjoyment.
We first discovered these little nuggets of gold while exploring Lisbon. We were thrilled a second time when we almost (almost) walked past Comme à Lisbonne in Le Marais in Paris. Needless to say, we returned several times on our afternoon walks back to our flat.
I hope you enjoy today’s sweet delight as we work our way, bite by bite, into the depths of Parisian deliciousness.
