HOW TO MAKE
Neapolitan ricotta cheese Easter pie
On Holy Thursday, in Neapolitan kitchens the women of the house prepare Easter baked specialties (such as Babà or Casatiello) that need slow and gentle rising... in the meantime, they focus on another traditional recipe that is a must on the Easter Sunday table: Pastiera Napoletana (Neapolitan ricotta cheese Easter pie)!
The ritual foresees that the oldest person of the family is in charge of judging the various cakes and decreeing the best one.
Like every self-respecting regional dessert, the recipe for pastiera, the unmissable dessert of Easter menus, is slightly different in every family. Riccardo’s version tried to follow the Napolitan traditional recipe. Ready to cook it?
