In a short clip on his social media page, Shane speaks about how his mum used to make the Roast Potatoes all the time, and how his Nannu taught his father the secret Fenek Stuffat recipe – which Shane then got from his father himself. Shane’s menu also includes a Ricotta and Gbejniet Salad, and home-made Galletti.

This video captures the true essence of the Maltese-Australian Community, who are so far away from Malta and Gozo but, despite that, they continue cherishing customs and culture, and culinary expertise – truly celebrating what it is like to be Maltese. Add that to a bottle of Kinnie, which can be easily found in stores across Australia, and you have the perfect Maltese Celebration.



Shane, we are far away, but we’d love a taste of those Maltese delicacies if you ever come our way! – Happy Independence Day!
