Travelers flying out of Amsterdam on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ World Business Class will soon be able to enjoy world-class dining by a Michelin-starred chef as the airline welcomes Dutch chef Jacob Jan Boerma on board. The airline has booked Boerma, a three-michelin star chef, to create dishes with his own unique signature for one whole year, starting October 25.

Boerma is known for his restaurant De Leest, which he opened in 2002 with sommelier Kim Veldman. The restaurant, serving French cuisine with cosmopolitan influences, has received a total of three Michelin stars over the years, the first being in 2003, the second in 2007, and the latest in 2014.

“It is a fantastic challenge to work with KLM, one of the greatest airlines in the world,” Boerma said. “I am very much looking forward to welcoming you to personally experience the menus at high altitude. The meals have been carefully compiled with KLM. I hope I can treat you to a culinary surprise.”
