The most famous of the Portuguese cakes, the Pastel de Nata (Custard Tart), shows up everyday in counters and tables of thousands of people all over the World. From São Paulo to London, from Singapore to Maputo, how do all the incarnations, names and adulterations of this Portuguese icon reflect the original delicacy? In the same way, how can we explain the fact we can find the Bolo de Arroz in cities such as Antwerp and Melbourne, always with the same wrapper, written in Portuguese? Through a worldwide call of cake photographs, gathered in a specially created pool on Flickr, we collected images from places around the world where these cakes are sold, bought and eaten, and included some of the best shots in the book.
