Topaz was honoured to host La Chaîne des Rotisseurs dinner on Monday November 24th, 2014.
What’s La Chaîne des Rotisseurs?
With over 25,000 members, the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is an International Association of Gastronomy now established in over 80 countries bringing together enthusiasts who share the same values of quality, fine dining, the encouragement of the culinary arts and the pleasures of the table. The distinctive character of our association is to bring together amateurs and professionals, from all over the world, whether they are hoteliers, restaurateurs, executive chefs or sommeliers, in the appreciation of fine cuisine.
The organization behind Chaîne des Rotisseurs
The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs was created under the 1901 French law regarding Associations with an International Headquarters based in Paris. At its head is a President with a Grand Argentier, a Secretary General and a Board of Directors. The day to day running is organized by National, Provincial and Local Bailliages. A National Bailliage is managed by its Bailli Délégué (National President), assisted by a Council. Members are inducted into the Chaîne at ‘Grand Chapitre’ gala events: three-day social and educational events that culminate in the induction of new members. Members wear ribbons at such events which denote their level of membership, whether Professional or Non-professional. These designations are standard in all Bailliages worldwide.
