Inspired by the Mediterranean image of sitting down with good food and good company, L-Ikla t-Tajba has devised a performative, contemporary look at Maltese ingredients, food culture and gastronomy. Through community cooking and interactive sessions, L-Ikla t-Tajba creates a mood board for the ultimate community meal through performance; with this ethos in mind, a group of thespians and circus performers then gather the experiences collected to design a weird and wonderful five-star dining experience that audiences can enjoy together. It’s a friendly space where food builds bridges and where tradition meets the new.

Between the 23rd and 26th August 2018, L-Ikla t-Tajba will be creating the ultimate community banquet! Through the collaboration of the Valletta 2018 Foundation, feast your eyes, and stomachs on an interactive take on the ultimate Maltese meal featuring ingredients from our past, delicacies of today and a weird and wonderful food experience for all audiences to enjoy. No we will not let you go home hungry, after the performance everyone is invited to join our community meal, and enjoy a traditional majjalata. Dine on slow-roasted pork with local grown vegetables, cooked to perfection, and sip on some of the finest wine, homegrown in Gozo, all catered by Ta’ Mena.
