The new "Ġobon Malti tal-Milord" was launched on the 30th May 2019 at Ta' Frenc restaurant in Gozo, where distinguished guests, food lovers and historians were treated to a cheese tasting and wine pairing event.

During the launch, Mr. John Magro, Chairman of Magro Brothers Group of Companies, addressed the event, proudly presenting his years of research in Malta's lost cheese heritage. He recounted how he managed to revive this forgotten culture through the "Ġobon tan-Nar" range of cheeses. Chef Mario Schembri, of Ta' Frenc Restaurant with over 35' years experience in the field, also acclaimed the new cheeses both in taste and versatility!

A selected number of restaurateurs were invited to come forward and together work towards further promoting Malta's cheese heritage - "In Malta we have enough cheese varieties to create our very own Maltese cheese platters, and we are more than willing to invite restaurateurs and chefs to work together to promote this as much as possible!" claimed Mr Magro.

Guests were exposed to various ways of using the "Ġobon ta-Nar" cheese, through live cooking demonstrations and recipes created by Chef Mario. A selection of dishes were prepared by the chef, using the tan-Nar Cheese as one of the main ingredients. Later on, all guests present had the opportunity to savour these creations themselves.

Sole distributors for "Ġobon tan-Nar" range of cheeses are M&Z (Marketing) Limited, and the new "Ġobon Malti tal-Milord" will be available on supermarket shelves in the coming weeks.
