  • Does anybody have information about the dietary customs in Malta prior to WW2? I've looked at several sources that point to there being no potatoes in Malta prior to the war……but thousands of tons of seed potatoes were shipped out to Malta on various vessels on other missions. One source also states that there was no butter in Malta until the tinned butter was shipped out……and it would be great if somebody could confirm that the staple carbohydrate in Malta prior to the war was bread with perhaps olive oil. So far my research also points to corned beef and tinned fish being unknown in Malta until the shipments during the siege, so it would be great if somebody could let me know if this is true!!
