Stephan Hogan, executive chef Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa

"If you only visit one place in Malta it has to be St Johns Co Cathedral in Valletta, built by the Order of St John."


What is your favourite dish to eat?

I personally love a hearty beef stew with chunky vegetables and crusty, accompanied by a good glass of red wine. We also serve up some amazing meat dishes in Villa Corinthia, the lamb and duck are popular.

When you were younger, what was your dream job?
Growing up I dreamt of joining the Royal Marines as my father has a military background, eventually I was drawn to the kitchen - a world where discipline is equally important.

What’s your favourite thing about working for Corinthia?
The opportunity to grow and see others grow and develop and be the best they can be in their relevant area of expertise.

What’s one of the must-see sights in Malta?
If you only visit one place it has to be St Johns Co Cathedral in Valletta, built by the Order of St John.
