Casa de Campo recently celebrated its first installment of “Flavors of the World,” a series of culinary events that invite internationally recognized chefs to our luxurious resort for innovative dining experiences that excite residents, visitors and foodies alike. On the weekend of May 20th, two Michelin Star Chef, Fernando Arellano of Spain delighted attendees at the Beach Club by Le Cirque with artfully prepared dishes along with Casa’s own Executive Chef, Anthony Masas.

Now through November, we’ll have several chances to be part of excellent gastronomy events and view masters of their trade. Chef Fernando Arellano is based in Mallorca at the Zaranda Restaurant in Castell Son Claret. He and his team won their second Michelin star in 2014, having earned their first at the restaurant’s premier location in San Bernardino, Madrid only a year after opening! They garnered the title, “the revelation of Madrid” by the Food and Wine Magazine, exemplifying an outstanding fusion of flavor, aroma and texture that continues to today.

Chef Fernando Arellano’s specialities are inspired by Mallorca’s time honored favorites and modernised into elegant works of art.
