Nothing says homemade like Maypole

Once a baker, always a baker !

Published: June 14, 2019

Joe Micallef, Nenu’s relative is a clear example of what once learned is never forgotten.


Joe, an 86 year old who lives in Australia, used to work as a baker in his local village of Msida.

In 1951 he emigrated to Australia where he never worked in this industry again.


Coming back to Malta after so many years he still speaks Maltese fluently and has not lost

his hard-earned skill as a baker which he has put to use again at Maypole Bakery where he was welcomed

as a family member, his wife being Nenu’ s cousin.


Joe enjoyed reliving his old memories at Maypole producing the traditional Maltese Bread.
