FIVE CENTURIES OF HISTORY

The story of the Pastel de Nata dates back to the 16th century. Granddaughter of the Portuguese King Manuel 1st, Princess Maria (1538-1577) kept a cookbook in her desk with a recipe for “Milk Pastries”, the first historic reference to this tasty tart, although at the time the outer shell was not puff pastry. The milk version produced a more solid dessert with a sablée pastry, but whose creamy filling was much like the one made today, even baked in the small moulds used for the current Pastel de Nata. The major breakthrough for today’s recipe was in the pastry preparation, influenced by the French school and currently using a puff pastry base.

The first mention of the Pastel de Nata name appears in the 18th century, in an old handwritten recipe with the title “Pastelinhos de Natta” (Little Cream Tarts) dated 1729, at the Santa Clara Convent, in Évora.

Since then, many records have been found of this extremely versatile and popular tart. Today, it is one of the principal gastronomic attractions in Portugal, and its fame has spread across continents. In the USA these pastries are known as “Egg Tarts”, in Asia as “Portuguese Egg Tarts”, in Australia as “Custard Tarts”, and on the streets of Macau as “Pou Táh”. In the UK, the pastry is named “Portuguese Custard Tart”, or simply “Nata”.

Now, NATAMANIA® brings this mouthwatering historic delicacy to the sophisticated Dutch coffee culture, and beyond. Maintaining the authentic Portuguese tradition and quality ingredients, we invite you to let your senses carry you to this fabulous country and its rich gastronomic heritage. Truly a symbol of Portuguese culture and cuisine, the Pastel de Nata is as important as Port wine and fado.
