the buzz





Set in the Mediterranean Sea between Sicily and Northern Africa, the three Maltese Islands, Comino, Malta and Gozo, boast 7,000 years of rich history. Maltese cuisine is a blend of flavors and culinary techniques brought by Phoenicians, Romans, Saracens, Barbary pirates, Crusaders, Ottoman Turks, French, and British. Seafood is central to the Maltese diet, and a walk through the fish markets show the abundance available: bass, stone fish, grouper, white bream, trill, swordfish, tuna, octopus, squid, and the famed Lampuka (dolphin fish). Maltese food is traditionally sun-drenched, seasonal and rustic, with goat and sheep milk cheeses, olives, almonds, honey, wine, tomatoes, and capers. A romantic island dinner might include wine and Bigilla (a rich pate of broad beans, garlic and olive oil), hobz biz-zejt (bread, rubbed with olive oil and tomatoes with tuna, capers, onion, garlic and capers), and pastizzi (savory filled pastries).
