Food and Flavours
Conclusion Vincent Massey Secondary School Malta- A Feast For The Senses By: Kamaldeep Mann Conclusion Country Details Malta, a country composed of three major islands, is located in the Mediterranean Sea, just 58 miles south of Sicily, Italy. Once part of the Roman Empire, it was seized and controlled by many factions over the centuries, including Napoleon. Malta's valuable military position was coveted by many, and it 1814, it became a British colony. That British control ended in 1964, as Malta gained its independence. With sparse areas of fertile land, its shipping and port facilities are economically important, but it's tourism that provides the major financial impact.

Soups are thick with vegetables and pasta
Uniquely Maltese is soppa tal-armia or widow's soup, made from vegetables and cheese with a poached egg in each serving Thank You For Listening :D Maltese people take food very seriously. Usually you are given an appetizer followed by a larger pasta dish. In Malta they usually follow the pasta with a meat of fish dish, you are also served bread. Maltese people try and enjoy the dishes instead of filling up on the bread and appetizers. This then lets you fully enjoy the entire meal.
For instance take into mind that most people would eat things such as 'El Maltese' Fruit salad, natural fruit juice prepared to order, bread, butter & jam, tea or coffee, for breakfast also dishes such as 'Nica' Gallo pinto (rice and beans), fried plantain, fried eggs and cheese, coffee (black or with milk) and 'Brisa del Lago' omelette with onions and bacon, fruit salad, natural fruit juice prepared to order, coffee (black or with milk) and 'Cocibolca' Pancakes with corn syrup or freshly cut fruit, natural fruit juice prepared to order, tea or coffee. As most countries conduct national holidays, so does the country of Malta, the two that I will be talking about today are Good Friday, and The Festas that occur. Malta has many holidays that they celebrate just to name a few, 10th February, Feast of St Paul's Shipwreck – (Public Holiday), 19th March, Feast of St Joseph – (Public Holiday), and 31st March, Freedom Day (National Holiday). Good Friday for Malta is celebrated either between late March and beginning of April. During Good Friday Processions, Malta’s streets are transformed into open-air theatres that celebrate the cycle of suffering, death and resurrection.
The next celebrations that the Maltese people take part in are Festas. Throughout the summer months between May and September continuous festas are held in Malta in honour of the patron saints of various villages.
