We enjoyed our trip to Porto so much that we decided to check out Lisbon!
Lisbon is the largest city in Portugal, built on 7 hills (or is it 8?), home to the longing "Fado" genre of music, and most importantly.. sacred keepers of the original Pastel de Nata recipe!
Since Pastel de Nata originated here, one of our missions was to taste-test as many as we could (without making ourselves sick ;) ).
Thanks to Dom's research, we also discovered that we could do a workshop at Pastelaria Batalha
to learn how to make them ourselves!
Although the class isn't set up in a way that you can each individually make the pastries yourself, our chef kept it interesting and tried to have us participate in as many steps as possible. In the end we learned a lot, had fun, and got to eat more Pastel de Nata :)
