I’m finally a fully-fledged member of the Chaine gang after being a guest of members at a variety of dinners staged at some of the most exclusive fine dining restaurants in the world … all with a united desire to deliver the very best in eating out experiences.
With decades of reviewing good and not so good eateries, I’ve been fortune to have met and befriended some fine chefs including Wolfgang Puck, Vineet Bhatia, Brian Becher, Yann Lejard, Imad Boukly Hasan, David Miras and Tala Bashmi to name but a few, and tasted some the most sensational cuisines ever placed on a plate.
And, sometimes it’s not all about the food. I once penned an eating out review at a five star restaurant and concentrated on the service provided by the then ‘acting captain’ John Musyoka. I suggested he would one day become the admiral of the Four Seasons fleet and, sure enough, he ended up managing, not one, but two outlets.
It’s all about the passion.
For the uniniated The Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is an international gastronomic society founded in Paris in 1950 - the oldest and largest food and wine society in the world.
The society is vintage in more ways than one but its events are cutting edge.
Members include gourmands, gourmets, gastronomes, chefs, restaurateurs, hoteliers, oenologists, winery owners, sommeliers, food and wine educators, and others interested in the finest of dining and life experiences and enjoying the camaraderie of friends at dinners and events.
The tradition of the royal guild of goose roasters of 1248 was revived in Paris in 1950, and we now carry on those traditions.
