"Fatias de Tomar" (Slices of Tomar - Portuguese Food Specialty)


Fatias de Tamar is a specialty of Portugal that deserves more attention here in the United States, too. It's an incredibly rich confection that starts with twenty egg yolks, which are mixed in the Thermomix for a full fifteen minutes, followed by another ten minutes, before being cooked in a water bath in the Varoma. What really makes this so popular is the hot syrup that's drizzled over the sliced yolk "cake" before serving.
