MERLOT: 10 Fun Facts For Foodies While Merlot has lost some of its luster over the past few years when compared for example to the trendy Syrah, there is much worth knowing about this important grape. Check out our 10 fun facts prepared for you.
1 It resembles a monther’s face One interesting but weird thing about Merlot is how to recognize it in vineyards. It’s all in the leaf you see. Due to the five overlaping lobes of the leaf, and the rounded hollow at the base of each lobe, the Merlot leaf is said to resemble a monster’s face!
2 My little blackbird The name Merlot is said to derive from the old French word for little blackbird: merle. Many people believe this is probably due to the blue/black color of the grape, but others believe it’s more likely that this sweet, early ripening grape saw more than its fair share of scavenging blackbirds.
3 It is a member of the Bordeaux family Merlot is part of the family that includes the many grapes referred to as Bordeaux varieties. In fact, researchers believe that Merlot is the offspring of one (Cabernet Franc) and the sister of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère.
4 It dates back to 1784 The oldest known mention of Merlot dates from 1784 and was written by a local official in the Bordeaux region. To this day, Merlot continues to be the most widely planted grape in Bordeaux, and one of the most commonly planted wine grapes the world over.
5 It was involved in a case of mistaken identity Until the early 1990s, the Chilean wine industry mistakenly sold a large quantity of wine made from the Carmenère grape as Merlot.
6 Merlot is grown from New York to New Zealand In addition to France, Merlot is an important wine grape in Italy (it’s the fifth most-planted grape!), as well as California, Romania, Australia, Argentina, Bulgaria, Turkey, Canada, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, Croatia, Hungary, Montenegro, Slovenia, and our little Malta.
7 The French banned it in the 1970s Merlot accounts for more than 50% of the total plantings in Bordeaux, where it is frequently used to add richness and softness to a wine, making it the perfect partner for the more tannic, leaner Cabernet Sauvignon. After enduring many problems through the 1950s (frost) and the 1960s (rot), the French authorities banned the planting of merlot in Bordeaux between 1970 and 1975!
8 It found fame through the French paradox Merlot rose to fame in the U.S.A. after 60 Minutes aired the famed French paradox report that claimed to prove red wine could be part of a healthy diet. The fact that Merlot produces a soft, fruity wine made it instantly popular.
9 It comes in white In Switzerland, Merlot accounts for nearly 85% of the wine production in Ticino, where it is often made in a light “white Merlot” style. After Merlot sales crashed in the some wine regions like North America, several producers began producing a sweeter style of white Merlot, much like the wines sold as White Zinfandel, to take advantage of the un-needed Merlot fruit.
10 It pops with plum, prune and pepper Merlot wines are generally fairly rich and soft. Classic descriptors for Merlot wines include black cherry, plum, prune, cocoa, coffee, mocha, green pepper, green peppercorn, and dried herbs.

When’s the last time you were called ‘Hanini’? ‘Hanini’ – Noun; used as a term of endearment or affectionate form of address. A particularly lovable or pleasing person or thing.
And lovable it is! Magro Brothers have done it again. The new range of Hanini products and not just to be loved, but also, for all Gozitans, to be proud of. The famous Gozo cheeselets have gone a step further. This fantastic new line of dairy products being produced in ® Gozo by Farm Fresh Ltd is now available to the public. For several years, Magro Brothers have researched and developed this new exciting range of products. Gbejniet, Ricotta and a cheese spread made from Gbejniet, in a plain and a peppered version, are produced on a semi-commercial scale. The ricotta is made the Maltese way, using cow milk rather than whey (the Italian way). All the milk being used for the Hanini range is pasteurized and coming from EU-approved dairy farms.

It has taken a good 80 years to make a long lost family dream come to life. The original founders of the Magro Brothers Company had set out to go into business by producing evaporated milk. Not being granted the license due to complications, they used the machinery to go into the tomato evaporating business. Two generations later, brothers John and Michael Magro have achieved the original goal of their father, and here is Hanini and the new range of, still to grow, dairy products. There is also a new range of delicatessen products, which include a salad of pickled vegetables and a tuna dip, distributed under the Three Hills Brand. The direction for Magro Brothers is freshness indeed!

Turkey Essentials Thawing A small bird of about 2.25kg will take about 27hr to defrost in the fridge, while a large bird of about 11.50kg will take more than five days in the fridge, to be completely defrosted.
Stuffing Donâ€™t overstuff. Pack the stuffing in loosely; to allow the hot air to circulate an alternative is stuffing the smaller cavity of the neck-end of the bird. Always be sure adding the weight of the bird and the stuffing together to circulate the correct cooking time.
Testing To see if the bird is completely cooked, insert a clean skewer into the thickest part of the thigh. If the juices run clear the turkey is cooked. If the juices are still pink cook for a little longer.
Carving Allow the turkey to stand for at least 15 to 20 min before carving.
Keep It Moist When roasting your bird, try putting it upside down on itâ€™s breast so the juices from the back and legs run down to the breast keeping it moist.

The Curious Product FOIE GRAS Our delicatessen counters in Portomaso and Gozo do their best to provide our customers with the finest foods and delicacies.

This French delicacy is made from duck or goose liver which has been fattened through force feeding. The pate has become a very integral part of haute cuisine. Having the creamiest of textures, foie gras can be used for a variety of dishes – you can spread it on toast for the ultimate in casual dining, or elevate it to fine dining standards with artichoke hearts and a glass of sweet Madeira.
