Mouth watering post!
Ovos moles (“Soft eggs”) are a local delicacy from Aveiro (Portugal) made of egg yolks and sugar. They have been a favorite dessert of the Portuguese for centuries. The tradition of manufacturing the product, which originated in convents, was maintained by ladies who had been educated in convents and who passed the secret from generation to generation.
A unique treat that pairs wonderfully with a Taylor’s 20 Year. This pairing will be availabe from March 19th and all through Easter.
So, we hope that you have a happy (and sweet) Easter!
Note: European Commission has given “ovos moles” Protected Geographical Indication. This sweet of Aveiro has been the first Portuguese bakery/pastry product ever to win this label.
