Minister Owen Bonnici said that this festival centers around a variety of local products and also celebrates its beauty.
“We will continue to work to make this festival a success. The main goal remains to foster in people’s lives the awareness and appreciation for Maltese identity and culture, and to embrace the aspects which make us what we are”, stated Minister Owen Bonnici.
The Artistic Director of this Festival said that in collaboration with various other professional chefs, a multi-faceted menu with local products was created. Charles Bone also said that all those who attend will be given a surprise as soon as they enter the building.
Valletta Cultural Agency Chairman Jason Micallef said that this festival will be another part of the Valletta 2018 legacy and invited the Maltese and Gozitan people and tourists to attend this festival and celebrate local cuisine.
This festival which will last for three days, from the 20th till the 22nd October from 7:30pm onwards, aims to celebrate local cuisine. The Valletta Local Food Festival will be held at the Valletta Design Cluster, which from a shabby building today has become a state-of-the-art building that can be enjoyed by all those who visit the capital city.
All those attending the festival will have the opportunity to taste top-level food cooked by professional chefs as well as local wine, beer and liquors, to music by established local singers.
Some of the different food items which will be available during the festival are roasted pork, herbal chicken roulade, butternut squash roulade, as well as many other food items which are associated with Malta such as dates, pies, krustini, honey, honey rings and cheeselets. High quality local wine and draft beer will also be available.
The Valletta Local Food Festival is supported by the Malta Tourism Authority. For more information about The Valletta Local Food Festival visit the Valletta Cultural Agency website or Facebook page.
