Every week Maldonado Bistro will be organising a cooking class, where guest will be given the opportunity to discover and make some traditional Maltese recipes. Join us for a local market visit & hands-on cooking class. Make Pastizzi, Gozitan Ftira, and traditional nougat to enjoy for lunch, accompanied by water, a glass of wine or beer, and completed with coffee.
Your host will share some cooking from his childhood memories. In our cooking class guests will be given the opportunity to discover and make some traditional Maltese recipes. This is a hands-on activity where guests will be expected to roll up their sleeves and participate in the preparation of some genuine home-made cooking.
The cooking class will also include a visit to the main square which used to be the main source of food shopping. We will purchase fresh produce needed for our cooking class. This can include a visit to a cheesemonger, fish hawker, and butcher.
We plan to make our own savoury snacks such as Pastizzi, a Gozitan Ftira, and traditional nougat.
After cooking we will enjoy the fruit of our endeavours as a lunch accompanied with some water and a glass of wine or beer.
Guests will be given a copy of all recipes as well as a food souvenir to take home.
Other things to note:
It is important to inform us of any food allergies and/or intolerances you might have.
We can adapt the cooking class if we are informed in advance.
The cooking class will be carried out in our open kitchen situated above Maldonado Bistro.
The open kitchen is fully air-conditioned. Seating is also available.
Message from your Host:
As founder and owner of Maldonado Bistro in Gozo, I have constantly made it my own personal mission to use food as a vehicle to create experiences. I have always been fascinated with peoples’ curiosity to food and its relationship to culture. This is how one truly experiences a destination and makes that desired discovery. In 2017 I set up a new open kitchen above Maldonado Bistro to create more personal experiences where people can meet, discuss food and culture, and get a closer view of the food scene in Gozo. I present my experience as a restaurant owner, local, foodie and friend.
I love to travel myself. There is no better way to experience different places and cultures but through food and drink. As a local and long time resident in Gozo, I am trying to do my part in reciprocating by offering my own view on our local food and wine.
