The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is an international gastronomic
society devoted to promoting fine dining and preserving
the camaraderie and pleasures of the table. Although
the modern day Chaîne began in 1950, our traditions
and practices are based on those of the old French guild
of roasters, whose written history dates to 1248.
The society has members in more than seventy-five
countries. In Canada, there are twelve "Bailliages,"
or chapters, each headed by a Bailli and other officers
who plan the chapter’s activities. These Bailliages
are governed by the Bailliage of Canada, consisting
of a Bailli Delegue and other national officers. Our
membership includes individuals with a keen interest
in fine dining, and professionals such as executive
chefs and restaurateurs.
