Thursday 28th April:
Razzett L-Antik – A Night of Local Folklore
Situated in the heart of the medieval village of Qormi, lies a 300-year-old farmhouse originally built to grind wheat into flour. ‘1743’ Ir-Razzett L-Antik was restored to enshrine a lifestyle almost forgotten by time. With its original features still intact this unique building stages the perfect ambience for distant memories to come alive. This venue is very rustic and is a great way to welcome guests to Malta. The kitchen fuses old and new methods of cooking, incorporating the art of marinating and slow cooking. Ingredients include exotic spices, which the Knights introduced to the Maltese Cuisine.
Once the guests arrive they are greeted by the waiters with a typical Maltese non-alcoholic welcome drink. The guests will be seated on long wooden tables and will be served a traditionally cooked Maltese meal. Starters will consist of a variety of snacks (goat’s cheese, tomatoes, capers, olives beans, Maltese sausages and bread). The main courses include dishes such as roasted leg of pork baked slowly in apple wine; rabbit marinated the traditional way with white wine, brown vinegar and herbs or slowly cooked fish in the traditional method. Traditional sweet and herbed coffee will be served for dessert. Once seated a duo of strolling musicians takes over to roam around tables and entertain guests throughout dinner. Many guests will surely not resist picking up the melody played by the two musicians and sing their heart out. Towards the end of the evening, the main stage will take prominence and the guests will be treated to a selection of musicians and artists performing ethnic music and folklore dance.
