“It’s over there in that little brown paper parcel… Six little barrels of ovos moles from Aveiro. It’s a very popular sweet, even abroad. Only the ones from Aveiro have real chic…”
in Os Maias, by Eça de Queiroz, 1888.
This is how a rare first edition of Os Maias, left open on the page celebrating ovos moles from Aveiro, offers a special celebration of this sinful convent sweet at the entrance to Confeitaria Peixinho.
Now also at Lisbon airport, there are a lot of reasons to take the best of Portugal to the world.
