The popular Summer Kitchen at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Attard is now open for another season of chic outdoor dining – poolside and under the stars.

Led by the Hotel’s executive chef Stefan Hogan, The Summer Kitchen brigade has crafted a menu the whole family will love.
“We’re excited to be back,” says Mr Hogan. “The Summer Kitchen has become an intrinsic part of our dining portfolio at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, and we have spent the winter perfecting many of our core dishes, as well as incorporating exciting new elements and ingredients.”

Highlights from the menu include their appetizer mezes of buttermilk-coated chicken wings with a blue cheese dip and celery sticks or the fritto misto with lemon mayo and parsley, followed by tagliatelle with ragù, mushrooms, pancetta, affumicata and cream or the stone-oven baked Campagnia pizza with roasted pumpkin purée, provola, ricotta salata and sage.
Salad-lovers are also well-taken care of thanks to favourites such as the vegetarian artichoke, pea, quinoa and summer herb salad with a lime dressing, while meat-lovers will relish the unrivalled flavours of striploin or rib-eye – perfectly cooked and seasoned on an open BBQ. In fact, there really is something for everyone, including very healthy choices, quick light bites and scrumptious desserts.

Wine has also been placed centre-stage thanks to the Hotel’s new partnership with P. Cutajar & Co Ltd & Charles Grech & Co Ltd. This exciting agreement is based on flexibility, and will consistently give patrons a choice from a vast selection of wines from different regions and countries around the world.
“Together with the Hotel, we have assembled a list featuring over 100 different premium wines, which is split into different, smaller lists at our various restaurants,” says Matthew Cuomo, the manager of the Wines Division at P.Cutajar & Co. Ltd. “There is now definitely a wine for everyone at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa!”
Of course it is the setting of The Summer Kitchen that also makes it very special. Located in the heart of the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa’s lush gardens, this is a green oasis enveloped by tall trees and surrounded by flowers.

And to really make the most of that, the Hotel has also launched Lounge Wednesdays in the garden from 1 July, with live entertainment from some of Malta’s top musical performers, delicious platters from The Summer Kitchen menu, and a range of fresh and fruity cocktails to complete the perfect summer evening.
