Our hospitality ethos reflects a deep-rooted passion for this magical, Mediterranean isle, and we love collaborating with Malta-based brands and people that share our passion across differing fields.

We are delighted to launch a monthly collaboration with the talented food influencer Maria Shebets, who loves sharing the richness of Malta's food heritage through her articles, recipes and insights published on her digital platform. Each month, we'll be sharing her latest recipes that combine the best of seasonal ingredients with her unique culinary creativity and flair.

Our first entry features the humble sardine, which is not only packed with nutrients that are essential for your health (protein,calcium, iron and potassium, vitamin B12, along with omega-3 fats) but is also a sustainable fish, as recommended by Fish 4 Tomorrow. Paired with juicy Malta-grown tomatoes, this dish perfectly encapsulates the Mediterranean spirit. To read the full receipe by Maria, visit her page here.
