strawberry pastel de nata! really, I prefer just a classic pastel de nata, no strawberry, but I thought I’d give it a go for fun. Cafe de Nata is my favourite place to go for custard tarts in London and the strawberry was quite nice, it had a lining of a strawberry jam almost, inside. I would still go for a classic though, nothing beats it.

I love this place because they are baked all throughout the day so whenever I get one it’s always warm. I just love custard tarts, my favourite.

Before Coronavirus I had to take a work trip to Portugal for training purposes. Like anyone who travels you always think what you can bring back to friends and family, I didn’t have a lot of luggage space and didn’t want to break the bank so I opted for an experience I could bring back to them.

One of the best dishes out of Portugal are these pastels de nata (cream tarts or Macao tarts depending on where you first encounter them). Which are tricky to make by hand and take a few hours of work. Now I’ve tried them frozen from the supermarket but they weren’t as good fresh and With the size of my suitcase In mind I turned to Airbnb. Airbnb now has an experience section where you can find photograph opportunities and cooking classes and it was from here that I found someone to teach me how to make these delicious egg tarts.

In the few months since my trip I’ve made these tarts twice and each time I get better and they get more professional tasting. Each time I get “this is the best” from my partner and son, truelly the best Christmas gift that keeps on giving.

Pastel de Nata DEFINITELY has a feeding kink, and you cannot convince me otherwise. It starts with him offering you egg tarts (like in his voice line), but over your relationship, it’s deepen into something… more. Refusing will be met with a pissy attitude for a bit, before he has enough and just forces you to eat damn it he worked so hard on them. If you get really persistent he just ties you up and says you can leave if you eat a few more platters
