Walking around K’Mart supermarket with Lorraine Hussain is literally the same as walking with a spice encyclopedia. I just had to raise an eyebrow and she would tell me the history of the item, what it is used for and how it is used in Malta, etc etc…. I really enjoyed discovering so many new spices and […]

Joseph Attard tal-Kejken has been selling ‘gbejniet’ for many years, and we have been his loyal customers ever since we had tasted his ‘ġbejniet nexfin’. They are absolutely to die for and my taste buds […]

Walking past the Nix Mangiare Stairs in Valletta I thought about the hordes of Maltese begging for food on these steps…
I sat down on these ‘nothing to eat stairs’ and ilovefood.com came to mind. What a contrast……Everyday, and rightly so, we celebrate food and the abundance of it while others have to beg.
Have a look […]

Last week the 1st Cospicua Scouts (Troop section) held their mini summer camp at their  headquarters in Vittoriosa. I decided join for a few hours to see what goes on in their ‘kitchen’.
A fully equipped temporary kitchen was set up overlooking the bastions. Clive and Daniel, chef patrons of the day, were  ready to prepare and serve […]

Last Sunday I woke up early, grabbed my camera and headed off to Marsaxlokk open market. I love open markets and visit quite a few, but I must confess that Marsaxlokk market is my very favourite one. Its  setting is unique.

Saturday 1st June saw the Malta International Food Festival at Zabbar. Thousands of people roamed the streets of Zabbar with one thing in mind – food. Six stations were set […]
