ABOUT YOUR HOST, LARA
Hi I am Lara, your host and chef. I love to eat, cook and travel. I have an understanding and an intimate relationship with food. I have an insatiable desire; for the science of food and its’ effect on the human body or for discovering food originating from different cultures and aroma. I am a state registered nutritionist having furthered my studies in nutrition and dietetics, I well as having studied as a culinary chef at our local college ITS and in Italy at Gambero Rosso. as well as having followed a number of cooking courses on my travels experiencing different cultures through their cuisine such as Italian, African, Japanese, Vietnamese, French, Sicilian, and obviously Maltese.
I believe food and cooking are the ultimate pleasure and my ditto is “We are what we eat.”
I have developed my own local and International fusion recipes and can device menus and cooking methods for any desire or condition whilst creating a pleasurable gastronomic experience.
My favourite words are ‘Buon Apetito!’ See you soon!
|WHAT WE WILL DO||Are you crazy about chocolate?
I will teach you how to cook and prepare 3 different chocolate recipes; a traditional Maltese recipe ‘Chocolate Pudding’ using chocolate as the base, a ‘Healthy Chocolate Mousse’, and ‘Sinful Boozy Chocolate Balls’. Once we cook the recipes together in my kitchen you will be able to reproduce easily any of the recipes at home according to your mood or if you are feeling indulgent you can prepare all three. After preparing the recipes you can enjoy your creations on the terrace with views of the Mediterranean.
