Cooking and Culture in Valletta

Cooking and Culture in Valletta thumbnail

Join us in our workshop where we will dive into the fascinating history that connects Malta to the Mediterranean and how that connection persists to this day. Upon entering our doors you will be greeted by our chefs with a tasting of hand made Maltese antipasti and a glass of local (methode champenoise) sparkling wine. Once all participants have arrived we will share the stories created by local peoples through the ages to explain the island's historic connection with the sea as well as our knowledge of how to best source sustainable, fresh seafood.

For the cooking portion of the workshop our chefs will demonstrate the best techniques to prepare fish, guiding you through the process of cooking a complete dish using nothing but the best in locally sourced seafood and vegetables from our personal network of fishermen and farmers. Once all the cooking is complete, we invite you to take a seat and enjoy the fruits of your labour with a glass or two of endemic wine, paired for the occasion.

The Mediterranean Culinary Academy classroom at No 4, Sappers Street, Valletta

All of our workshops will be held at our purposely-designed professional kitchen class room on Sapper Street in Valletta, conveniently close to the nearby open-air public car park.

Our modular classroom has been created to morph effortlessly between technical and theory exercises, with plenty of space for you to work, cook and learn. Designed for up to 12 students and a lecturer at a time, our classroom is also home to the latest cooking equipment – although it still feels like a comfortable home kitchen.

We look forward to welcoming you!
