World Figolli Day 2012

By Ms.Gourmet on March 9, 2012 12:16 PM
Last year I came up with a hair brain idea to host World Figolli Day ©. One year on, and it's proved to be less hair-brained. Thanks to its huge success in 2011, it seems to be turning into a regular calendar event! Hence, we're running World Figolli Day © again this year and the event is open to everyone!

The idea behind World Figolli Day © is that you turn off your iPhone and shut down your MacBook and then head into the kitchen with your kids, nieces, nephews, nanna and nunnu and have a bonding session with some dough and hopefully pass on a few Maltese culinary traditions whilst your at it.

The 'day' is basically a virtual hang-out of figolli makers worldwide but this year we have decided to do things a little differently. As well as the virtual event  we also intend to assemble a physical gathering at the Maltese Community Centre in Melbourne on Saturday the 24th of March. It's a ticketed event and numbers are limited, so it's a case of first in best dressed. If your interested in coming please RSVP here.

If you are a blogger please feel free to blog about your figolli making efforts as we intend to do a round up once the virtual competition is over.
Remember to take photos and or video of your completed creations and then upload your images to the World Figolli Day © flickr group. We will then pin your glorious creations to the World Figolli Day © pintrest board.

Then, come Easter Monday Shane Delia will help me judge the best Maltese and best Australian based figolla. The winners will receive a signed copy of Shane's latest book Maha.
