The Chaîne de Rôtisseurs is an international organisation which celebrates the enjoyment of good food and wine. Sharing and appreciating fine dining with fellow members is at the heart of our association.
The Chaîne’s headquarters is based in Paris and we have more than 24,000 members worldwide. Each country divides itself into regions known as Bailliages. Here in the Solent area our local Bailliage broadly covers Hampshire and West Sussex.
We host between six and eight exclusive dinners or luncheons each year at establishments of the highest quality and reputation - as well as at exciting or interesting new ones. The carefully chosen menu is designed to showcase and display the outstanding culinary skills of the chef and brigade, with the wine flight matched to the food.
An inclusive price is agreed for the meal, wines and service. Pre-dinner wine and canapes are normally provided. Conviviality and company are the binding ingredients of the success of the Chaîne. Generally, the chef/proprietor will close the restaurant for our exclusive event and the entire brigade and front of house/service team will be celebrated at the close.
Chaîne membership entitles members to attend any of the literally dozens of events held by our fellow Bailliages each year across the country and globally.
For more information on the Bailliage de Solent and our events, please visit the Solent website. The website also contains menus and reports of recent Solent events as well as details of the next lunch or dinner event.
