Live like locals - Eat like locals

Published on April 11, 2017 by Frank

Gozo food
Lent time is over... and this is the most important week, known as the Holy Week leading to the greatest feast of all - Easter - the birth or the very beginning of no end!

On the island of Gozo, traditional food is very widespread in the local tiny villages. The so called 'Qaghak tal-Appostli' or the Apostles Rings are traditional rings made for hundreds of years.

People on Gozo enjoy buying these freshly baked rings from our town of Ghajnsielem - straight from the wood oven. Many like to eat them as a snack, others sipping them in coffee and tea and children and teenagers make sure it is part of their lunch to school.

Very tasty and not sugary. No chocolate. Few dried fruits and almonds. Excellent treat whether for breakfast, fruit break, tea time, lunch or dinner.

This week, in our town, these popular rings are freshly baked every day till Good Friday.

After these rings, it's another very popular Easter treat which takes over in practically all local homes... more details another time!

Pictures below taken this afternoon at 6.15pm while sharing some of the freshly baked rings with our current guests - Paul and his family from Australia.

Hi! :) My name is Frank, born and live on the island of Gozo, Malta in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea. I believe every holiday is a beautiful journey to discover and treasure new places in a local way. Well…I enjoy most swimming, walking, cycling, food and wine pairing. Last but not least, sea-kayaking in Gozo is top in my list and Hondoq is a place I really like. Please do not hesitate to text me. You are most welcome anytime! Grazzi hafna / Many thanks
