The History Of The Pasteis de Nata #GBBO #2017

The History Of The Pasteis de Nata #GBBO #2017

Paul Hollywoods technical challenge saw the contestants make the 'Pasties De Nata!' 

Now we think it's fair to say these little custard tart are a firm favourite for many of us! And we should know, they fly off our markets and we love them just as much as you guys. 

So, here's a little bit of history. The Portuguse custard tart was orginally created by monks in a monastery in the district of Belem! 

Legend has it that following the closure of the monasteries in Portugal in 1834, a monk from the Heironymite Monasery began selling these little cups of sunshine. #THANKYOU!

Now the original recipe still stays a closely guarded secret BUT we're pretty sure ours are just as good :)
