In the 1798 inventory of the Inquisitor’s kitchen utensils and equipment, hurriedly drawn up before Napoleon’s invasion of the Maltese Islands, the sorbettiere in the credenza have increased from the three mentioned in the 1759 inventory to nine. They are complemented by “quattro palette di ramedorato”, moulds for cheese, pane di spagna, and ice cream, four coffee-pots, three chocolate-pots, a distiller, two dough mixing bowls and biscuit baking trays, a mallet and a small shovel for ice and utensils to freeze strawberries and cheese.
