Lord Stow’s Bakery (Rua do Cunha Shop)
A Macau icon, Lord Stow’s Bakery was founded in Coloane, Macau on 15th September 1989 by Englishman Andrew Stow. Andrew was awarded the Medal of Tourism Merit by the Macau SAR in January 2006, in recognition for creating his unique egg tart recipe which became this signature Macau delicacy. Now Lord Stow’s has come to Taipa Village, bringing its tempting taste to Cunha Street, where Andrew’s Egg Tarts are baked on site. Lord Stow’s original Bakery continues to operate in Coloane Village, offering European-style pastries and bread. It is complemented with a branch at The Venetian Macao.
The Inspiration of Portuguese Egg Tarts
During a trip to Portugal in the mid-80s, Andrew had become familiar with their popular Pasteis de Nata – a kind of egg tart, which had its origins in Belem, Lisbon in 1837. Andrew wanted to produce Pasteis de Nata for his customers, but had no recipe. His Pharmaceutical background made him no stranger to experimentation and Andrew set forth, experimenting with his own version. He dispensed with some conventional methods & ingredients, and introduced an English touch. By doing so, Andrew created his own specialty and introduced the “Portuguese” Egg Tart to Asia in the form they are now recognized and known. Lord Stow’s Bakery suddenly became famous for one item – Andrew’s Egg Tart. Journalists started writing about Andrew and his little bakery found itself on Macau’s list of tourist attractions. Andrew’s original recipe Egg Tarts became well known beyond their territorial confines, attracting a faithful following and becoming a visible export, almost a trademark of Macau.
