Pastéis de Nata are traditional Portuguese custard tarts made from a rich egg custard flavoured with cinnamon and lemon and a shatteringly crisp puff pastry. The best place to eat these delicious Portuguese tarts is in the Belém quarter of Lisbon, in the Antiga Confeitaria de Belém an old patisserie shop dating back to 1837, where thousands of Pastéis are sold every day. If you haven’t got time to make puff pastry from scratch, you can use ready-made all butter puff pastry. The secret to making good Pastéis de Nata is to get your oven very hot and make sure you brown the tarts really well, almost to the point they look burnt. They are best eaten warm the day they’re made.
