Heritage Malta’s Inquisitor’s Cookalong Sessions will resume on Thursday 27th May with a webinar focusing on honey in 17th and 18th century Malta, and a recipe fit for a pope.
The cook along 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, and 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 put their questions to Dr Noel Buttigieg, Mr Kenneth Cassar and Chef Joseph Cassar.
The cookalong session will be in English and starts at 7.00pm.
