Various Home Economics students from the University of Malta participated in a Cooking Contest launched among students of the six universities that are members of the SEA-EU Alliance, after an initiative by the University of Western Brittany, Brest, France. In Malta, the initiative was coordinated by KSU, the Student Union.
Three students submitted what were judged as the best three-course-meal submissions from UM, featuring only healthy and seasonal ingredients.
In a short ceremony on campus on 30 June, the students were presented with redeemable vouchers by Mr Neil Zahra, President of the KSU and Prof. Godfrey Baldacchino, SEA-EU Coordinator at UM: Elisa Scerri (1st); Eleanor Pisani (2nd) and Kaylin Pirotta (3rd).
All three opted to propose a delicious fish soup (aljotta) as a starter, followed by swordfish (pixxispad) as a main course. There were variations in terms of accompanying sauces and vegetables, as well as in the choice of dessert.
