Mediterranean cuisine for every day

18th Mediterranean Cooking Event – Malta

2 comments Mar 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Blogevents

Malta is the smalles member state of the Euopean Union with a surface of 320 square kilometer and approximately 400.000 inhabitants. Though small in size the diversity when it comes to Mediterranean fruits, vegetables and herbs is great. Meat is rare on the islands, but rabbit is served a lot. The main source of protein is the local fish. The Mahi-Mahi is the “national fish” but also Ġbejna, a small cheese from goat milk is eaten a lot.

Start date is the 10th of March 2011.
End date is the 10th of April 2011.

I was trying hard, but could not find a cook book on the cuisine of Malta. Not even a related book with good ratings could be found. So this time the joy of participating must be motivation enough.

These are the RULES:

Who can participate?
Everyone that blogs and loves food.

What do I have to do to participate?

1. Cook a dish from the actual country of focus.
2. Post the recipe on your blog. Mention the event with a backlink and include one of the banners in the recipe post or on your blog in general.

How is the winner chosen?

After the event has finished I will put up a poll

on the blog that includes all participants. You will have 2 weeks time to vote for your favourite dish.

Can I participate with more than 1 recipe?

  1. Dear Tobias

    I do not know where you get your information from but to say that meat is rare in Malta and that the main source of protein is Fish shows you either haven’t been to the Island and whoever gave you the information gave you the wrong information, or if you’ve been to Malta I don’t know where you stayed ! As for not finding any Maltese cookbook …….. now THAT shows you haven’t been here at all !

    Please feel free to contact me if you need any information about my Island.

    Many thanks – Louise dimech
