The super- hot weather has put me in a holiday mood and has led me to think back to my trip to Malta last year. Maltese cuisine is heavily influenced by Italy- wholesome and full of flavour. If you visit Malta, give their Maltese platter a try. It is a selection box of several Maltese delicacies, including breads, Maltese sausage and sundried tomato. The Maltese have got it right- why have one thing when you can have everything! This is one that we tried in St George’s Bay, however most restaurants should serve them.
