L greetings again from Malta...This computer still won't let me reach the AOL "SEND" button on the right of the screen, so I'm using JUNO again...I apologize for the computer settings that showed up on copied text. I have oatmeal for brains...I have one more touring day (Saturday), and then I travel home on Sunday.
I'll try to attend any NYC service for Allen Walker Read if it's given on Monday or later. Maybe David Shulman or others are interested in going. Please post if anyone has any info.
Friday was Gozo day...Saturday is packed, so it looks like I won't make it to the National Library on this trip.
OKey--name of a product by Gelati Stocchi.
GOZO CHEESE SALAD--Lettuce, tomatoes, onion rings.
GOZITANA PIZZA--mozzarella, tomatoes, salami, onions, ham, garlic, capers, olives. Seen at another place as tomato sauce, Maltese sausage, Gozo cheese, olives, onion, anchovies, capers and mozzarella.
MALTIJA PIZZA--Seen many places now. Tomato sauce, mozzarella, Maltese sausages, pepperoni cheese, eggs, mushrooms, green pepper, and oregano.
MALTESE FTIRA--gotta have this for lunch tomorrow. Seen everywhere, it can be "tomatoes, capers, tuna, olives," on Maltese bread.
KINNIE--the local soft drink is made of bitter oranges. It wasn't to my taste. See www.kinnie.com. There is a local drink called "Kinnie Winnie"--Brandy, orange, Grand Marnier, Kinnie.
BOMBETTE--"filled with spinach, mozzarella and ham." See www.cordina.com. The place dates back to 1837.
FRULLATI--"mixed fresh fruit drinks," offered by JUSCAFE (which also has Smoothies). It's about the same.
CHOCOLACCINO--"Cappucino-Panna-Chocolate," also by JUSCAFE.
MALTESE COFFEE--with "tamakari/madlien." Found at many places.
CHICAGO PEPPERONI--seen at one place. Why Chicago?
BURGER KING--In the center of Malta, guarded by the Knights of Malta, is the "Burger King."
THE FOOD & COOKERY OF MALTA (first printed in 1972) by Anne and Helen Caruana Galizia--This book has a bibliography, but there isn't a cookbook older than the 1960s in it.
A GUIDE TO MALTESE COOKING (no date; 200?) by Francis Darmanin--Pg. 95: "SWEET RICE A LA MALTA Despite the name, this is not a Maltese dish. I came across it in Sweden where it occurs quite regularly on restaurant menus."
MALTESE LANGUAGE SIGN AT THE BEACH:
MHUX PERMESS TGHUM JEW TIXXEMMEX "TOPLESS" JEW GHARWIEN.
NO NUDE OR TOPLESS SWIMMING AND SUNBATHING.
(If they're going to prohibit Jewish women from going topless, I've got to re-think about moving here--ed.)
