Maltese chef creates an outstanding menu
" lively cuisine that mirrored characteristics of Maltese life "

The Bailliage was hosted at the residence of the Ambassador of Malta, His Excellency Patrick Cole (who is a Chevalier d’Honneur) and his lovely wife Jo.

Malta, the beautiful historic island located in midst of the Mediterranean, has been influenced by many cultures, Roman, Arab, British, French, Knights of Saint John. Dating back to around 4000 B.C over the years it has combined the best from many of these cultural inspirations. The island’s cuisine which developed over the centuries goes especially well with Malta’s local resources.
