A Maltese Cooking Experience with renowned chef Pippa Mattei
Time: 09:30 – 14:30 hrs.
Ideally held on a Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday - which are fresh food market days.
Pippa Mattei is a chef, food writer and teacher. For 35 years her kitchen has been a place where she has shared many meals with friends and those passionate about food and learning about it.
Pippa has written several books, namely her bestselling ‘25 Years in a Maltese Kitchen,’ and ‘Pippa’s Festa’, which won an International award from GOURMAND in Paris.
She has featured on American Life TV, on Greek and Gibraltarian television, and was a guest chef on a local prime time television show.
Pippa hosts cooking lessons throughout the year, (except August) in her state of the art and air-conditioned kitchen, where she shares her passion of Maltese cuisine while creating dishes using the freshest local ingredients.
Weather permitting, lunch will be hosted in her Mediterranean garden, or failing that, in her dining room overlooking the garden.
The day will start with a trip to a local market such as the Farmers’ Market on Tuesdays and Saturdays, or the bustling Fish Market of Marsaxlokk on Sundays.
Pippa together with her husband John, will prepare a typical Mediterranean lunch with you, which will be accompanied by the finest Maltese wine from the nearby wine estate and will end with Pippa’s homemade mandarin or lemon liquor.
Signed copies of Pippa’s cookbooks are also available to purchase at a discounted price.
In addition to the cooking class, we can also organise a visit to the nearby ‘Ceramika Maltija’ pottery studio at the historic Villa Bologna – should you wish to source some original souvenirs to take back home with you.
Tours of the San Anton Gardens by the Presidents Palace can also be arranged.
Should you be interested in visiting a Maltese winery as part of the days’ events, please reach out for additional details.
