Once a seaweed-harvesting boat and now your transportation for this fun excursion, a moliceiro boat is unique to Portugal’s Aveiro region. Step onboard and set sail to explore the inland Aveiro channels, which boast calm waters and offer a “road” through the city from a waterside perspective. Then, you’ll come ashore for an interesting workshop at the Oficina do Doce that will show you how a local pastry, “ovos moles,” is made. It’s difficult to translate this name, but is often described as “sweet, soft eggs.” This confection features an egg-based center encased in a thin crust of delicious pastry. Learn more about ovos moles and other local pastries by watching a fascinating short movie about Aveiro’s history and culinary traditions. After the movie, visit the production process — where a couple of volunteers will be able to join in and assist with filling and cutting these tasty treats. Of course, samples are offered to everyone!
