The extravagant eight Michelin star dinners include cocktails, four amuses and an extravagant five-course dinner with wine pairings from Pepia-Est Aruba.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming guests and locals to Windows on Aruba for an unforgettable night of fine dining with fantastic, award-winning chefs,” said Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort’s Director of Food & Beverage, Dominique Bauduin. “Each dish is carefully crafted by the chefs with fresh, exotic ingredients, bold flavors and exquisite presentations.”
The participating chefs, including François Geurds of FG Restaurant and FG Food Labs, Erik Van Loo of Parkheuvel, Edwin Vinke of De Kromme Watergang and Jermain de Rozario of De Rozario, all hail from the Netherlands and have eight Michelin stars combined.
