Pastiera Napoletana, a traditional Naples Easter cake from the 16th century - Episode 108

Whenever I'm in Naples I make sure to head to a Neapolitan pastry shop so I can pick up some of the very best of Neapolitan pastries like Pastiera Napoletana. 
It's classically an Easter cake but you can purchase it year-round. On Easter every Neapolitan family has Pastiera for dessert and many families make it themselves. What makes this Neapolitan Easter cake so unique is the grano cotto in the recipe. 
So what is grano cotto? Listen to this episode to find out!
Pastiera Napoletana is a fascinating dessert that dates back to the 16th century, full of a rich culinary and cultural tradition of a mix of legend and history.
