Maltese Food Thu, 03/29/07 9:12 PM (permalink)
I have become curious about Maltese food.

Someone please describe the cuisine and tell me the imfluences on it, the similarites to and differences from Italian or North African food.

I would like to have first hand comments about favorite dishes / recipes, not the results of someone googling.

And are there churches with a concentration of members with a Maltese heiritage that have published cook books or that have Maltese dinners on feast days?

    They eat falcons, don't they?

        I friend of ours loved Malta so much, he nearly bought a home there. He described the food as a cross between Sicilian (which in Sicily has lots of middle eastern influences) and Portuguese. He lived in Europe for years and said the food in Malta was some of the best. He especially like all the seafood, vegetables and interesting breads.

          iqdiva,

          Thank you for the link and the recipes and further links are interesting. I was hoping to see a recipe for what I can only describe as stuffed artichoke, based on a friend's description, and did not find one although there were artichokes.

          Anyone, Maybe there is a stuffed artichoke preparation in Italian cookery>

            If you find a crop of Maltese restaurants, be sure to share.

            Because my first thought was falcons, too.

              Well, then-
              Wouldn't it be a FLOCK of Maltese restaurants?
