Attention food lovers: block Sunday 4th December on your calendars!
Eatmania will be participating in the Malta Artisan Christmas Fair which will be held at the Phoenicia Hotel in Floriana. For this special event Eatmania is proud to provide you with an array of traditional specialties synonymous with the Christmas season. Everything is prepared home-made with local, genuine and high-quality ingredients.
We will tantalize your taste buds with one of the typical Christmas Eve’s dishes – the imbuljuta – dried chestnuts cooked in dark chocolate, flavoured with orange and tangerine rinds and spiced up with cloves, nutmeg and mixed spice. If you are in for something savory pick your portion of ross il-forn – baked rice. We use superfine carnaroli rice, which we import directly from Riseria Ferron in Verona. The rice is slightly toasted and then combined with a tomato-based sauce made with Maltese sausage meat, Majjal ta’ Malta bacon, onions, herbs and spices. Everything is blended together with cheese and oven-baked until a soft crust is formed. Also on our menu is hobz bil-majjal – Maltese ftajjar spread with our home-made apple chutney and filled with rosemary and fennel roasted pork slices. Last but not least, the sfineg ta’ l-irkotta – soft balls of deep-fried dough with sweet ricotta and topped with honey and chopped almonds.
We will also be displaying a selection of preserves and chutneys, prepared for us by Katy in the Kitchen, which make ideal accompaniments to your Christmas menus.
Did we tease your appetite enough?
