I'm especially excited about this month's Food the World party. This month we're jetting off to Malta, a sunny island off the coast of Italy. It's fitting that we'll be focusing on Malta's food because that's where I am at the moment!
The husband, son and mother-in-law and I are all enjoying some much needed down time in one of the most beautiful countries I've ever visited. We've got two lovely weeks booked here and I plan on finding out as much about this English-speaking country as I can and trying as many of the lovely foods as I can. Malta has a very interesting history and a lot of influences from other cultures, predominantly British influence (it used to be a British territory), French and of course, Italian.
I was planning on making a recipe from Malta to share with you for this party, but completely ran out of time, so instead, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite things from my Trip to Malta Pinterest Board and a little bit about Malta itself.
Maltese Food I want to try while we're here:
|Figolli, Almond Pastries|
|Imqaret, Maltese date pastry|
|Pastizzi, Maltese pastry filled with meat or cheese|
|Orange Malta Ham|
|Traditional Maltese Bread Van|
|Maltese hobz biz-zejt u t-tadam|
I wasn't able to get the code for the party before I left, but you can find the party on Simple Living and Eating!
