Episode 4 - Maltese Food

Episode 4 is finally landing in your ears. After Episode 3's unusual mix of loosely related drinks and stories we are back on more stable ground in episode 4 where Sam introduces Nate to the Maltese world of food and drink. From pickled cheese to their less than craft traditional brewery. 

In this episode we drink a lovely glass of Kinnie. This Maltese bitter orange soft drink is delicious refreshment in these hot summer times. I have previously rhapsodised about Kinnie on Hungerlust


You can buy Kinnie at various online retailers including Amazon. Here is the link to their Kinnie page.


We also chow down on some Cheesey Twistees and galetti. Both great party snacks. For a recipe to make your own galetti see this page on Hungerlust 

All the beers we drink in this episode are from Malta's largest brewery, Farsons.  Here is link to a recipe for Maltese Christmas pudding made with Farsons Milk Stout, Lacto. 

We also gobble the highly unusual Gbjeniet cheeselets. Some cow, some sheep, some peppered and some pickled. All delicious even if the aftertaste of the vinegary ones linger longer than you might like!


We didn't take any pictures of the Gbejniet we ate, but here is one that Sam's Mother in Law made. There are tons of recipes about how to make Maltese Cheese but a good starting point is this post on the very useful Maltese recipe site a Maltese Mouthful
