Easter pie, torta pasqualina

The torta pasqualina is a traditional pie from Liguria, a wonderful region by the sea in North-west Italy. This pie is made during Easter time when the days are getting warmer and sunnier, and people enjoy having pic-nics outside bringing their home-made food to share with friends.

We will show you how to make this pie either with home made puff pastry or with ready-made puff pastry.

If you are going to spend your Easter holiday in Liguria, take a look at the Liguria section of this page.
