Thought having Michelin-starred food in Malta was just a pipe dream? Well, it’s possible, for one night only, this October! Michelino Gioia, the Michelin-starred executive chef at Il Pellicano in Sardinia, will be in Malta to prepare a five-course meal in collaboration with Palazzo Parisio’s executive chef Ciro Saliatello on 11th October.

We’re told that the menu includes some of Michelino Gioia’s signature dishes, including a delightful dish of seared scallops that is also served at Il Pellicano. And as if that weren’t enough, every course will be expertly paired with wines from different regions in Italy and Sicily. So foodies take note - it's an excellent opportunity to indulge in the finer tastes of Michelin star standard cuisine without leaving our shores.

This is the second time this year that Palazzo Parisio has collaborated with Michelin star chefs. June saw the arrival of chef Paolo Barrale, who, we can reveal, will also be returning later on in October!

Weather permitting, diners will enjoy a feast of the senses in the serenity of the walled gardens, surrounded by the splash of Mediterranean colour offered by the bougainvillea. Should the weather gods not look down fondly, the event will move inside to the cosy interiors of Luna restaurant.
