The origins of the Pastiera are a mix of fascinating tales and history. According to legend, this dessert was borne from the cult of the mermaid Partenope; Pastiera was one of the presents that the people offered to her.

History, instead, says that the nuns invented Pastiera by mixing up the ingredients they found in the garden of the monastery to create a sweet treat.

Pastiera is a dessert typical of Easter time, but you can taste it all year round.

Learn how to mix the ingredients that capture the fresh scents of spring such ricotta cheese, orange flower water and candied peel and discover the secrets behind preparing the perfect Pastiera. Immerse yourself in the Neapolitan way of life while tasting the fruit of your work, chatting with your Cesarina and sipping gorgeous local wine. What could be better?
