  • Here's a question I've been trying to find an answer to for a long time.

    When we made patata i-forn bil-majjal and took it to the local furnar mom used to make it in a deep dish – we would get a small metal number in exchange and a matching number would be put on the tray as well.

    Anyway, does anyone know what a deep dish is called in maltese? I'm sure we wouldn't have called it a dish let alone a deep dish – there must be a word for it.

  • Josef… as far as I remember we always called it “dixx”… I have checked several older cookbooks written in maltese and they all refer to the vessel as “dixx”… you’re probably right, it was called something else…. find someone who has a buz nanna still alive and you may get your answer
