What do you get when you take a very rich, very spoilt girl out of her massive mansion and give her daily, hands-on challenges from all around the island? Well, Lovin Malta is on a mission to find out in a new series where we put Davinia in a number of situations she’s definitely never been in.
A Eurosong veteran and self-professed daddy’s girl, Davinia might not be the first person that comes to mind when thinking of getting your hands dirty, but that’s exactly what we’re getting her to do. Or at least, as far as this first episode goes, getting her hands full of flour and a couple of pizza ingredients.
Making her way to beloved St. Julian’s pizzeria Piccolo Padre, Davinia had a go at being a pizzaiolo for a day… and things got very chaotic very fast
Unsurprisingly, Davinia went into the challenge with absolutely zero knowledge of how to cook pizza, but resident star pizzaiolo Lorenzo was patient enough to show her the ropes. Up to the moment where she did everything completely wrong, of course, at which he hilariously summarised her work with a quick and simple “Disaster”.
Attempting to prepare Piccolo Padre’s popular pizzotto (along with a couple of staples like the Diavola), Davinia definitely tries her best… but in between hole-riddled pizza bases and a sad pizzotto thrown on the floor, Lorenzo’s seven out of 10 final rating (or is it six?) is actually pretty generous.
In the end, though, we’re still salivating at every single pizza that came out of the oven… Davinia-prepared or not
It’s tough to make a renowned pizzeria’s ingredients look bad, and Davinia definitely doesn’t manage to do so.
And hey, difficult student aside, Lorenzo turned out to be a great teacher, and we want to devour every single pizza! Dibs on the Diavola though.
