Earth Kingdom emblem
Egg custard tart

This egg custard tart was smuggled through the Great Divide by the Zhang tribe.

An egg custard tart is a dessert widely coveted by Earth Kingdom citizens.[1] As the name implies, the tart is a baked pastry filled with egg custard.

History

While traversing the Great Divide together with the Zhangs and the Gan Jins, Aang discovered both tribes had smuggled food in defiance of the canyon guide's warnings. His outrage at this discovery dissipated, however, when he noticed that the Zhang tribe had brought at least one egg custard tart with them, the glimpse reminding him of how hungry he was. After successfully escaping the canyon, he asked where that custard tart was, stating he was "starving".[2]

Connection

The egg tart was introduced into China in the 20th century from British and Portuguese cuisine via the European colonies at Hong Kong and Macau. It is an adaptation of European tarts; its round crust is filled with egg custard and baked.

Trivia

  • The egg custard tart was Aang's favorite food.[3]
  • The egg custard tart featured in "The Great Divide" was four weeks old.[3]
