Chefs set to attend include:
1 François Geurds
Internationally known for his innovative cooking, François opened the first culinary laboratory in the Netherlands where he experiments in the fields of taste and technique.
He is the owner and chef of two restaurants situated right next to each other in the Rotterdam and awarded by Michelin for FG Restaurant (**) and FG Food Labs (*).
He’s also recently been honoured by Guilfred Besaril, Minister Plenipotentiary of Aruba in The Netherlands, as official Cultural Ambassador of Aruba.

Located not far from the Rotterdam Euromast and next to the Maas River, Parkheuvel (**) is a round building designed by Klunder Architect, having undergone various tasteful metamorphoses in recent years.

Edwin has a love for regional products from Zeeland, including fish and salty flavors, and tries to be as personalised and sustainable as possible.

Jermain was a mere 26 years old with no culinary experience when he became infected with the cooking bug. Now at the age of 34, he is the owner of his own restaurant, De Rozario – which was awarded a Michelin star this year.
Over the years, Jermain has developed his own style, throwing out the culinary rulebook and cooking only what he likes. The 2019 Michelin Guide says Jermain “combines and presents Indonesian and Asian flavors with a lot of creativity. Playful at times, but always striking. A kitchen with punch and finesse!”
