A great mix of food, wine and music. Enjoy a buffet dinner of Malta’s finest foods while enjoying live folklore entertainment and sipping delicious wine under the starry night sky.
You will savour the delights of traditional Maltese cuisine, including its delicious crusty fresh bread; ġbejniet – an interesting Gozitan goats’ cheese, often coated in crushed black pepper; bigilla – a bean dip, eaten with wonderful water biscuits called galletti; and pastizzi, small filo pastry pies filled with ricotta cheese or peas. They are simple, but mouth-watering. You’ll also enjoy salads, meats and wonderful desserts.
The event takes place at the Limestone Heritage, Park and Gardens – a disused quarry – and as well as all the locally-produced food, you’ll be introduced to many aspects of Maltese folklore in the form of traditional music and dance, including the Frejgatina (Fisherman’s dance) and the Farmer’s Dance with its star performer – a live donkey!
For a truly typical Maltese experience, look no further.
