What you'll do

ARE YOU READY TO BAKE SOME AUTHENTIC MALTESE PASTIZZI?

Pastizzi are everyone's FAVORITE go-to snack that you can find in any corner of Malta & Gozo, and I want to share with you some of my Maltese Culture

Once our hands are washed and aprons are on we can start to get messy as together you will prepare the Pastizzi dough from scratch as I guide you through my grandma’s recipe step by step.

To keep it authentic we will munch away at our freshly oven-baked pastizzi with a nice cold cisk beer, Kinnie or some te fit-tazza.
Other things to note
Pastizzi is phyllo-pastry based snacked traditionally made with LARD and filled with ricotta cheese or mushy peas

As a foodie, who loves to travel, i'm always in search of that perfect dish or quick and easy snack

but....

.......... I've come to the conclusion that there’s nothing more indulgent than home cooked meals and my favorite, grandma's recipes prepared with love.

As food is our common ground - the kitchen is our temple where I will share the secrets of Maltese Cuisine.

We had a great time learning to make pastizzi with Mikela. As first time visitors to Malta, we appreciated the opportunity to learn more about Maltese culture and everyday life. The pastizzi were delicious and Mikela was a patient and friendly teacher despite our rather questionable dough-rolling abilities. Thanks Mikela!

We had a great time learning to make traditional pastizzi with Mikela in her grandmothers flat. Mikela was not only a great teacher allowing us to be completely hands on during the class, but she is also friendly, warm and incredibly welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed the class, the chit chat, the laughter and because of this we have decided to take a local food class every time we travel. For those that love food I cannot recommend Mikela enough. Thank you for a great experience :)

Warm and friendly host, very interactive class with everyone getting involved as the group size is small! Mikela was great at instructing us but also helping us to have fun! Awesome experience!
