Apart from restoring a dilapidated site back to its former glory, Nenu – The Artisan Baker attracts a degree of tourism influx which, to date, has given little consideration to this part of Malta’s historical city.
Additionally, a myriad of potential local target audiences visit the premises as a means of entertainment or for many another events.
Nevertheless, whether one is a tourist or a local, the most popular reason for such visit is the tasting of typical Maltese authentic food, especially the Maltese traditional ftira. Nenu provides visitors not only with a dining experience to be remembered but brings to life the historical evolution of ftira baking and cooking of traditional gastronomy.
Virtual and physical displays of bakery related memorabilia are permanently on display in order to inculcate a more personalised approach to the art and skill of the bakery trade amongst visitors who, under normal circumstances, may have underestimated the economic and social importance of the trade across so many decades. Nenu takes pride in knowing that those who wish to do so may also immerse themselves in a hands-on experience of the process of ftira making. Bakers will demonstrate and pass on some of their artistic skills to those eager to learn a few tricks of the trade.
