12 Pastelles with Chicken Filling (Trinidad Christmas)
One of Trinidad’s seasonal delights, pastelles are a steamed cornmeal pie with a meat filling wrapped in banana leaves.
Our pastelles are available from November to December. In 2016 orders will need to be made by 15th December to ensure Christmas delivery.
These pastelles are made with chicken. Pastelles are a steamed cornmeal pie wrapped in banana leaves and filled with stewed meat, olives, raisins and capers. They are very similar to Latin American tamales. Pastelles are normally enjoyed at Christmas time with friends and family.
Our Trinidad Pastelles come in many different options including pork & beef and beef only.
The Pastelles need to be either frozen by you and kept for up to 6 months or kept in the fridge for up to 2 days. The best way to heat these up is place foil wrapped Pastelles in a steamer and steam for about 15 minutes. Do not remove foil before steaming. Pastelles can also be microwaved but make sure all foil is removed and the microwave for about a minute and a half for each one.
Our pastelles are available from October to December. Orders will need to be made by 15th December 2017 to ensure Christmas delivery.
