Our award-winning kitchen brigade secured eight awards at the recent Malta Kulinarja Cooking and Culinary Arts Championships. Held at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta Qali, the event attracted chefs who competed across a vast range of categories. Speaking after the championships, Corinthia Palace executive chef Stafan Hogan said: "We are very pleased with the fantastic results achieved by our brigade. As a hotel, we believe in encouraging our team to enter into competitions such as this one, as it gives them a chance to challenge themselves, be creative and step outside their comfort zone."
Hotelympia, the UKs most prestigious hospitality and foodservice event that took place this week, bestowed a clutch of medals on the kitchen brigade from Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa. The four-day event includes a competition to award top culinary skills and Corinthia Palace Hotel chefs walked away with a total of 13 medals, including two gold, three silver and eight bronze medals. “I am delighted for my team,” said chef Hogan, “they are amazing results.” The tally of 13 medals at this year’s Hotelympia improves on the eight medals the hotel secured at the last event, in 2016.
THE CORINTHIA BALLROOM
REFURBISHMENT OF THE CORINTHIA BALLROOM
The beautiful Corinthia Ballroom at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa – previously known as the Chameleon Suite – was completely refurbished towards the end of 2015, creating a contemporary conference and events venue in the heart of the island.
The renovation was originally undertaken to transform the space ahead of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Heads of State dinner, which was held here as part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in November 2015. The Ballroom enjoyed a complete transformation to mark that evening, with modern lighting, a new colour palette and contemporary fittings and fixtures installed.
It has since undergone further changes to secure its reputation as an excellent and elegant location for parties, corporate events, special occasions, product launches, lunches, gala dinners, receptions and conferences.
Today, the Corinthia Ballroom is a flexible space that can also be designed to suit the unique needs of your next event. This space comfortably seats up to 450 people, with room to accommodate 550 guests at a standing reception. It can be configured in a variety of ways, including U-Shaped, Cabaret, Classroom and Theatre, and is accompanied by state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities.
As always, and with any venue at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, your event will be expedited by our dedicated Events Team, who can help to guide you on everything from lighting and décor, to your chosen menu crafted by our award-winning kitchen brigade.
