Lunch at the Michelin Star - Marenna Restaurant, at Sorbo Serpico, Avellino, Italy on the 21st of September, 2012.Marenna.The Marenna Restaurant in Sorbo Serpico, Avellino, is part of the Feudi di San Gregorio Winery. It has been awarded a Michelin Star, and is working endlessly to obtain their second star, but this of course is the sole jurisdiction of the Michelin inspectors to decide if and when. Our group consisted of twenty-four persons, and we were booked at this venue weeks before. Needless to say we were all looking forward to this dining experience, and the planned menu that was presented to us contained the Chef's recommendations including a variety of wines that were each paired with the dish and course that was served at any one time.The kitchen, glass enclosedbut can be viewed from therestaurant.The Kitchen: Here you can see that the kitchen is nice and large.  Being the kitchen of a huge winery,  I t...

I have recently read a feature in a food magazine that is distributed free with one of the Sunday newspapers titled "Michelin Man in Malta". This was quite an interesting feature in which all and sundry were informed that Sig Fausto Arrighi, Director of Guida Michelin Italia was invited by a prominent Italian restauratuer operating in Malta, viz: Sig Pinuccio La Rosa  owner of the signature Ristorante Don Serafino 1953 in St. Julians, for a familiarisation visit which might hopefully sow the initial seeds which might one day blossom into Malta's inclusion into the Michelin world. The feature ended with this paragraph: quote " Indeed the visit by Sig Arrighi could be an exciting first step towards providing the opportunity for local chefs and restaurants to take the formidable Michelin challenge. The road would not be an easy one and discipline and the highest of quality standards in food, ambience and service, would be of paramo...

26th March, 2012.The Westin Dragonara Resort.Review date:Sunday, 25th March, 2012.THE TERRACE RESTAURANT AT THE WESTIN DRAGONARA RESORT, ST. JULIANS.The reception area at theWestin Dragonara Resort.Over the years that I have been reviewing restaurants, including those on three luxury cruise liners, as well as a large number of hotel restaurants specializing in exclusive Sunday buffet lunches during the yearly season between October of one year to mid-June of the next, I have become consciously as well as subconsciously observant of many things that occur around me in these venues. All the hotel restaurants of note, although most have a standard style of buffet with antipasti, soups, pasta, main course and carvery, and desserts stations, all go the extra mile to produce something unique to them whether it's an ethnic theme station with food from a different country and region every week, different main courses, exotic desserts, etc. O...
