What is Eatmania?
In this page you will find anything related to food & wine. We speak mostly about food… what to cook, what to buy, what to eat, what to preserve etc. It’s like a religion for us. We love simple, good quality ingredients especially, mainly of Italian origin… but we are ready to experiment with any enticing ingredient. Around 2 years ago we used to run the Bocconci restaurant in Valletta, Malta. Alas, today we have all returned to our desks but our passion for food still remains and thus we have created this page to share with our readers our ideas and inspirations. So enjoy and your ideas and comments are most welcome.
Who is Eatmania?
Just started my 30s yet my passion for cooking, eating and drinking good quality wine has been within me for ages. The older I get the stronger the passion grows. I spend my workdays in an insurance company handling claims… yeah quite a negative environment! Yet, I colour my days with talk about recipes, restaurants and travel. I enjoy entertaining friends and family… preparing food for them to indulge into… if I had enough money I could easily buy any recipe book I find in front of me. I dream of living in Italy and on a lower scale I wish I could go for a cookery course in Italy as well… these are all plans for the future cause right now I am studying insurance… but you can never give up on dreams eh?! they might always come true!
We might not be alike as two peas, but my sister and I have one same affinity – our unconditional love of food! If I recall well what brought me so close to cuisine were these cooking magazines, which my aunt used to buy regularly. She had this whole collection of neatly filed magazines each one containing recipes from a particular country e.g. Italian, Indian, Chinese, French, etc. Then right at the centre of each magazine there was a whole menu with national recipes, depending on the country in topic. I used to decide which menu to try out and ask Mum to buy all the necessary ingredients. Poor Mum! Sometimes she had to keep looking for some ‘strange’ ingredients which were not found easily on our supermarket shelves, especially around 15 years ago. So that’s it, a 15 year old love story, evolving and developing into a professional hobby. I am now residing in Amsterdam, the land of tulips… or bridges … or coffee shops… call it what you prefer! I cook and experiment with dishes independently now. I must admit that I do not have the hard task my Mum had in Malta to find all the required ingredients, here there’s variety, not only in terms of quality, but also in terms of ingredients. Well then, you will be watching more about me as I start contaminating eatmania with my recipes and thoughts…. till then bon appetit!
