The name of the place Monastik was brought about by the inspiration of the way the monasteries work by growing and using their own food which is the purest form of sustainability.
Our menu concept is of a continental European nature where they have cold winters and hot summers, and the produce is very seasonal and thus conservation practices such as fermentation and pickling have always been used to keep the summer farm and foraged food throughout the whole year.
Here at monastik our kitchen is using 99% local produce – the only thing we use which is not Maltese is the flour of which we are awaiting our first harvest to also be able to produce in the coming months to be solely Maltese grown or caught food.
This comes with its challenges with things
such as sugar and oil to cook with of which we have found sustainable alternatives by studying the history books.
Nose to tail
All our meat is bought from local farmers and are bought whole so it is our mission to respect the animal and use every part of it.
We are slowly getting more involved with the growing of the animals and hope to be able to say that all our animals will be 100% organic in the coming years
