A Four Hands Dinner
In the medieval city of Mdina, the de Mondion Restaurant at The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, raised the bar one more time and hosted a dinner with a difference.
Last month, respective guests were treated to a dinner titled “Four Hands Dinner”. Renowned 2-Star Michelin Chef Vincenzo Candiano, from Locanda Don Serafino Relais & Chateaux in Sicily, was accompanied by Infinitely Xara’s Group Chef de Cuisine Kevin Bonello. Diners were welcomed with canapés and an aperitif. A gastronome’s paradise followed with a 6course menu with local and Italian produce including Red “Fake” Tuna with Sweet and Sour Tomato Ganache and Caper and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Powder, Nettle flavoured John Dory Spelt “Aljotta” and Sea Urchin, Saffron and Hyblean Truffle Acquerello Risotto, Caprino Goat Cheese and burnt Red King Prawn from Mazara, and Braised “Mtaħleb” Snail Ragout, Fennel Seed, Jerusalem Artichoke and Poached Hen Egg. Coffees and petit fours were served after the Montezuma’s Sweet Sins Dessert made with handcrafted chocolate from Antica Dolceria Bonajuto.
This one-time event formed part of the Route de Bonheur by Relais & Chateaux – the fellowship of hotels of which both The Xara Palace and Locanda Don Serafino form part.
Infinitely Xara and the de Mondion Restaurant would like to thank the sponsors – Planeta, Diamonds International, Kind’s, Charles Grech, NM Arrigo, P Cutajar and Demajo – who made this night possible.
