We’re in Malta for Christmas this year so I haven’t done much cooking but have done lots of eating. For Christmas day 22 of us were at my Aunty Moira’s house with the above beautiful view of Valletta out of the living room window.
What followed was a 5 course meal consisting of:
Imqarrun fil-forn – a tradition taken from the Italians, we like having pasta as a starter and imqarrun is a classic Maltese dish, I love it! This is macaroni baked in the oven with a meat sauce (bolognese style) and an egg mixed in to bind. The best bit are the top layer of macaroni which get crunchy while baking.
OK, it was Christmas so I had a bit of turkey and stuffing after I’d eaten this plate.
I forgot to take a picture of the cheese board and our first desert which was tiramisu (whoops) which was closely followed by coffee and pastini from Cafe Cordina.
And so we paused from eating until a few hours later, after a few games of tombola..
