Erin McGuire

Color: Sunglow Yellow / #FFCC33
Giclee Print
13" x 19"

About this piece:
Sunglow yellow reminds me of the bright and sunny colors in Portugal, and of the fantastic pastries found there. In Medieval Portugal, nuns used egg whites to starch their habits and had an abundance of leftover egg yolks. The nuns used these egg yolks to invent hundreds of pastries including the famous Pastel de Nata, an egg custard tart found everywhere in the country. As a result, Portugal has one of the most creative and varied pastry cultures in the world.
