IN DETAIL: This recipe from Portugal became one of the most appreciated desserts in South and Southeast regions of Brazil. The biggest secret for a good ambrosia (word that comes from the Greek mythology and refers to a delicious food that would give miracle powers to the gods) is the texture: it must have perfectly regular little curds.
