Putting A Stamp On Portuguese Food, Pastel de Tentugal, A classic from the 16th Century

One of the things that stayed with me from a July 2018 visit to Portugal is stamps.

I had bought a few too many stamps that were not used as airport clearing for flight back was a little slow.

So I brought back Portuguese food memories, exhibit # 1 is 'Pastel de Tentugal' or Pastéis de Tentúgal.

History has it that they were created by Carmelite nuns in the town of Tentugal (Coimbra district) in the 16th century.
