Pastiera Napoletana (Vegetarian and Halal)

Pastiera napoletana is the most famousNeapolitan cake, type of tart made with cooked wheat, eggs, ricotta cheese, and flavoured with orange flower water. 

The Pastiera napoletana has a more recent origin story involving the nuns of the Convent of San Gregorio Armeno in Naples. A nun wanted to bake the cake, a symbol of the Resurrection, and to emphasise the eggs, a symbol of rebirth, and the orange scent, because the orange trees grew in the convent gardens.

Originally it was prepared in Naples for Easter.
