On the 27th of May, Heritage Malta is organising a webinar, revealing the Maltese recipes of the 17th and 18th centuries. This particular session will focus on honey and the different ways it was used in Maltese cuisine.
The cook, will kick off with some singular anecdotes on the history of beekeeping in Malta and the various, often unusual, uses of honey along the centuries presented by Dr Noel Buttigieg, who lectures on the heritage and culture of food at the University of Malta, together with Mr Kenneth Cassar, Senior Curator for Ethnography and the Arts within Heritage Malta.
Chef Joseph Cassar will then use an 18th-century recipe to create Pan Papato; a sweet made with several luxurious ingredients for aristocratic tables, and possibly the precursor of today’s Christmas cake.
Following the recipe, participants may ask their questions to Dr Noel Buttigieg, Mr Kenneth Cassar and Chef Joseph Cassar.
The cook along session will be in English and starts at 19.00.
To follow the webinar you need to register in advance and pay a registration fee of €5.00EUR.
