Maltese breads and baked goods are a huge part of the island’s culture, so it’s no shock that people adore a good bakery. There are tonnes of bakeries around but we thought we’d concentrate on Qormi’s strong bakery game in particular.
Did you know that Qormi is known for baking Maltese bread? In fact, back in the day when the Knights of Malta ruled, Qormi’s nickname Casal Fornaro literally meant it was the Village of Bakeries. Hundreds of years later, the dough is still very strong with this one.
