Feb 2016 - VIVANDA

Vivanda is set to go … it starts today, Thursday 18th, and stays open until Sunday 21st. Daily it is open between 10:00hrs and 22:00hrs. It is packed with fun activity, lots to see and taste, so be sure not to miss out.

The main attraction is the Malta Kulinarja, which is the Cookery and Culinary Arts Championship, here chefs challenge each other in competitions to win awards in different categories.

This competition is organized by the Malta Chefs Society under the auspices of the World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS). The competitions are various and include a vast array of dishes, with the ultimate prize being the Chef of the Year Award for personal achievement and a number of other prizes awarded to teams, such as the Parade du Chef. The food prepared for this competition will be served to those who booked in time to savour the competition’s dishes.

These sessions are all sold out. This doesn’t mean that those visiting the event do not get the opportunity to lunch or dine, the event is supplied by a restaurant throughout the day offering traditional slow cooked food, platters with a give-away cheese board and other dishes. With every 2 platters ordered, 4 glasses of wine are given complimentary. This is supplied by the Chef, Martin Camilleri.

Apart from the vast array of activity around the Culinary Competition, Vivanda is set to offer the visitor a variety of tasteful experiences. Most of Malta’s suppliers to the industry are displaying their goods to the trade and public. With a total of over 30 exhibitors the event will give the visitor the opportunity to taste and savour food and wine and view other novelties in the industry. Some exhibitors will be giving out gifts too… look out for these.

The event is animated by Manuel Aquilina from Aroma Kitchen. We have prepared fun activities for children too. By donating 2 Euros to charity, children will get to decorate a delicious muffin from Catermax, with Manual.

Inspire have also organized their very own cake competition around the event too.  These cakes will be displayed during the event and the winner will be announced during the event. 

Undoubtedly Vivanda is jam packed with activity … visit between Thursday 18th February and Sunday 21st February, open between 10am and 10pm.
