    cant you do them for me ill pay p+p lol

    A bit off topic but I'm going on holiday to Malta next year.Can you recommend any Maltese specialities to try along with the above?

    Make them, but use ready made, ready rolled flaky pastry sooo easy. Or take the ingreadients to a friends house and beg them to do it?

    my advice would be make sure you try the smaller restaurants rather then the '' tourist places '' and try, Timpana (Baked Macaroni) - Stewed Rabbit - twisties (maltese crisps a better version of nick naks) - Fried Lampuki

    OK thanks for that

    Hi There, greetings from a Malteser currently living in London .! Couldny help but drop by and leave a reply as i came across this thread by accident :). pastizzi are quite tricky to make surprisingly and you can have either rikotta which is goats cheese traditionally or pea, naturally having a mushy pea filling. For Mumoftheobeast, id suggest trying rabbit, some of our fish and minestrone .''Bragoli'' which are rolled up steaks with an egg inside similar to beef olives...etc . I could go on all day haha. Maybe ill open a proper Maltese restaurant of my own haha.
    Enjoy anyway:)

    if you do pm me cos i cant find anythign that i want anywhere, i did make my own (my maltese mum helped) and they just aint the same

    I don't know of any Maltese restaurants but you can buy all sorts of Maltese goodies at least a couple of times a year (in London only though). malteseculturemovement.com/?p=55
    I've been going to the Maltese Fair (Malta Day - UK) for the past 8 years or so. I come away with bags of Twistees and a case of Kinnie and while there I eat fresh hot pastizzi and some hobz-biz-zejt, made with ftira. If you take a cool bag you can buy frozen pastizzi to take home - I've done this the past couple of years.
    I won't be going this year as we're going to be in Malta for the whole of August, so I think I shall fill up on goodies while there and bring loads back with me! (Having said that, I may just nip up there to grab a case of Kinnie! Me and my girls love the stuff!!

    mumbojumbo

    Malta would be a much nicer place if it didn't have such a corrupt … Malta would be a much nicer place if it didn't have such a corrupt government.It's gaming regulation and legal system stink.



    And what relevance does this have on finding pastizzi in London?

    I've just had another look at the Maltese Movement website. Seems you can get Maltese food and drink on the first Sunday of every month, and play bingo as well!!

    mumbojumbo

    The Maltese culture would be better liked if it wasn't so corrupt.



    I think you're talking in riddle - or should I say, mumbo jumbo.

    What has the Maltese culture, or government, got to do with finding pastizzi in London?

    You're welcome.

    If you do go to the Imnarja Celebrations or the Maltese Fair I would advise you to get there early and buy your stuff as soon as you arrive as it gets extremely busy and they do sell out of things. They always get more as they send someone off to their "headquarters" to get more supplies, but you'd think they would have learned by now to just bring more in the first place!! Also the queue for the pastizzi and hot food gets so long, but it is worth the wait.
    Enjoy it!!
    There is also free parking in the streets around Victoria (where the Maltese Fair is held).

    im gonna stock up

    I agree totally with the person whose called Mumbojumbo. i know it has nothing to do with pastizzi but it's true. Majority of these people especially the so called solicitors, whome i call 'LEGALISED CRIMINALS' should all be hung up from the nearest tree or shot. Even the people who are supposed to monitor them, are worst then them. I do feel sorry for the few who are decent. And they can stuff their pastizzi where the sun don't shine.

    Where in London did you find Kinnie? Please do tell!!




    Ive located two places.. One is a after hours night club called The Den in Holborn....

    The other one is a small corner shop on Shaftesbury Avenue... at the top of it... near the junction of New Oxford Street.

    Im not 100% of the name but i think its called Sunrise... there is 2 cornershops there... so if its not one its the other lol but they sell Kinnie in a can, where as The Den (Nightclub) sell it in a can and bottle... was really surprised to see it.

    Thank you, I'll have a look next time I'm up there.

    Fyi, the Maltese Fair is on 10 September this year. A case of Kinnie (24 cans) costs £15. Also, if you ring the Maltese Culture Movement people they might be able to arrange to meet you for you to buy Twistees.

    Thats great because that shop sells cans for £1 each. ^^

    Thanks for the info... i will put the date in my calender

    Sorry, just seen this. Yes, I am half Maltese; I used to live there when I was young. We were in Malta for the whole of August.

    I went to the Maltese Fair on 10 Sept and bought some frozen pastizzi and frozen ravjul and a case of Kinnie - things I couldn't really bring back with me!!

    Edit : When you're cooking your pastizzi don't have the oven at too high a temperature or else the outside will cook, but not the insides. They'll probably take 50 mins or more to be properly done.

    Snap!! My mum's Maltese too. She came to live in the UK after she got married (to an Englishman) and was here for 40 years. 4 years ago, not long after she retired, she went back home to live in Malta.

    As I say, when cooking the pastizzi don't have the oven too hot, say around 150/160 degrees C. Place them on greaseproof paper, or a well greased tray and cook them slowly. Check them after half an hour and then every ten minutes or so. Maybe the last 10 minutes turn the temperature up a bit to get the outsides a bit crispy. Enjoy!

    Have you tried making things like timpana or baked rice? They are very easy to do. Let me know if you want my recipes.

    Happy Birthday.
