We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: timpana is basically the closest we’ll ever get to tasting heaven.
Food porn junkies were treated to a bastardisation of the traditional dish by the Food Network, who annoyingly kept referring to it as a ‘timpano’. The comments exploded as many were baffled by the ultimate carb-ception.
The video’s recipe distances itself from the Maltese version quite heavily towards the end, as it becomes less about mqarrun wrapped in pastry, and more like a ‘chuck everything you have left in the fridge into this dish’.
And unfortunately, that’s where the foreigners turn their back on Malta’s favourite treat.
Brace yourselves, some users may find this distressing to read.
