In the time of Easter when the first wind
of spring sweeps through Napels, grandmothers start
baking one of Naples most loved pastries - Pastiera
Napoletana with a sweet taste of oranges and cinnamon.
The story tells that the Pastiera Napoletana was created
when the people of Naples gave princess/mermaid Partenope,
their city's seven most precious goods, flour, ricotta
cheese, eggs, wheat, orange liqour, cinnamon and sugar,
symbolizing life, fertility and natural richness. It
was from these seven precious goods, the Pastiera Napoletana
was created - a unique medditeranean dessert.
