Liquid sustenance in the form of Chablis and San Josef, two French wines found in General Vabois’ cellar, provide an added note of authenticity to the ‘blockade menu ‘of 1799 recreated by Heritage Malta’s Taste History Team. Corroborating this fact, a bottle of Chablis dated to the period in question and originating from the Captain of Galley’s cellar in Birgu was retrieved from an underwater excavation.
The ‘blockade menu’ is just one of the many bespoke meals inspired by artefacts and historical documents that Taste History recreates for private events. Catering for small intimate celebrations to corporate gatherings of up to 80 guests, the Taste History team of curators and chefs organise exclusive, tailor-made meals and banquets to suit every occasion. Prospective guests may select from a catalogue of historical meals, seasonal ingredients, and an extensive portfolio of unique historical venues comprising palaces, forts, museums, and auberges to stage your special occasion in.
