Acqua & Farina Fresh Pizza base – make your own pizza

I tried out Acqua & Farina pizza base on two different home-made pizzas, one being vegan and the other vegetarian.

Which is why many opt for a ready made pizza. Acqua & Farina pizza base is totally plug and play or rather plug and eat. The...

Kuhne Italian salad dressing

Summer is approaching and we all tend to eat more salads, though I like a good salad most of the year. The good thing is that salads are quick to prepare and can provide you with a mix of vitamins, minerals and fibre. It is always advisable to try to have a mix of colours in your salad as that ensures a balance of various positive properties that come from vegetables. Also add with some vegan-balls, tofu or both actually. The key to a...

Foam and Fork – raising the bar in Marsascala

Thank you, next. Over the past few years, we have seen a slow but rising trend in vegan and vegetarian offerings in the local food scene in Malta.

The demand is there and while you do find veggie or vegan options in most restaurants nowadays, it is normally an...
