Bless My Mum!

When I spoke to my mother a week ago about my embarking on writing a Maltese cookbook, her immediate reaction was to tell a family friend she is staying with (my parent's are currently in Malta for a holiday). Last night when I got home from work I found a large heavy package waiting for me, in it was some very old Maltese cookbooks, a set I recognised as being one's that bride's in Malta received as part of their dowry box. I was astounded, but the hard work is to come, since all the recipes are in Maltese and needs to be translated. While I can read alot of it, some words I have trouble with and will need help with, I can understand spoken Maltese, but reading it is another matter.

So exciting!
