Four Hands Dinner to feature two Michelin-star La Madia Chef Patron and Corinthia Palace executive chef

18th October 2019 

Chef Pino Cuttaia and Chef Stefan Hogan will present a six-course tasting menu and wine pairing, in collaboration with Charles Grech Co Ltd on 23 October.

One of Sicily’s top chefs, Pino Cuttaia, is travelling to Malta to present a one-off culinary experience with Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa executive chef Stefan Hogan at Villa Corinthia, in collaboration with Charles Grech Co Ltd.

On 23rd October, the two chefs will present a fabulous six-course tasting menu enhanced by a carefully-curated selection of wines from the noble house Frescobaldi in Tuscany. “Together, Chef Cuttaia and I we will present a collection of signature dishes that champion the bounties of the Mediterranean,” chef Hogan says.

Chef Cuttaia is a fiercely proud Sicilian, who was born in Licata on the southwest coast of the island. The name of his restaurant – La Madia – translates as ‘cupboard’ in Italian, and it is this simple image that informs the menu at his two Michelin-starred eatery in Licata, Sicily.

Cuttaia describes his dishes as “a personal interpretation and memory of Sicilian classics”, and his food is known to be bold, personal and thoughtful, with signature classics reinvented in a new, refreshing way, a spokesperson for the Corinthia said.

According to the Michelin guide, “Cuttaia’s extraordinary work focuses on his ingredients, which he transforms by adding to their essential character, often with highly original results”.

Mr Hogan, meanwhile, leads the award-winning kitchen brigade at the Corinthia Palace, crafting exquisite menus across the hotel’s Villa Corinthia, Rickshaw, and Summer Kitchen.

“We always try to push the envelope at the Corinthia Palace, and to bring our discerning clientele something new and exciting to look forward to each season,” says General Manager Adrian Attard.

“This Four Hands dinner is an opportunity to do exactly that – as we blend the inimitable talents of Chef Cuttaia and Chef Hogan, and combine them with the glorious wine from Frescobaldi by Charles Grech Co Ltd, and all in the extraordinary setting of Villa Corinthia.

“We look forward to welcoming guests to this exceptional occasion at the legendary Corinthia Palace,” Mr Attard said.
