When I wrote my blog from Malta and Gozo earlier this summer I know promised more memories from Malta. So todday, only hours before we are leaving for 2 weeks in Italy I will share with you a few "food photos" from Gozo :-)
The first one shows Ingrid enjoying her strawberry and vanilla icecream at a restaurant in Gozo's main city Victoria. We visited this restaurant a couple of times, my favorite was Gozo coffee with a taste of aniseed. It was perfect on a hot and humid day.
One morning my parents, my husband and I went up to the nearest village to visit a temple from around 3000-4000BC. After our sightseeing and some grocery shopping the others drove home, while I decided to stay in the village for a few hours on my own. I always love walking around as a lonely tourist - in Trondheim or around the world. And when lunchtime came I decided not to walk home to our farmhouse but to eat at the Oleander Restaurant at the village piazza.
Started with a kind of local salami, local goat cheese, olives and dried tomatoes. Then fish soup which was absolutely perfect - in my family we are huge lovers of fish soup, and our favorite is the one my father in law makes. Ingrid even had grand-dad making it for her confirmation last year. Grand dad's is still my favorite, but this one took a number 2!
We were 18 travelling together on this Gozo trip, my parents, I and my family and my three brothers with their families. We tried to eat together most nights, but of course it could be a challenge for the restaurants to find room for all of us. Some nights we could sit toget5her all 18, other nights we split. All nights the food was great and so was the people :-)
