The Chicago Chapter of the not-for-profit Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is a dynamic group of food and wine enthusiasts, in excess of 130 members, with discerning palates who share a common interest in a passion for fine cuisine and wines based in education, camaraderie and fun around the table. The Chicago Chapter was founded in 1963 and has, since its inception, had a close and important relationship with the leading scions of the hospitality industry in the city of Chicago. Our aim is to bring together professionals within the hospitality industry (executive chefs, leading restaurant and hotel owners and managers, wine distributors, sommeliers, private city club management, culinary institutions, premier caterers and purveyors) and non-professional members eager to participate unique high culinary dining experiences that individuals would have difficulty organizing by themselves . The Chapter organizes about twelve events per year at fine Chicago area establishments with the goal of creating an exceptional gastronomic experience accompanied by fine and appropriate wines, while at the same time creating an ambiance of camaraderie and fun and, where possible, furthering the education of the members in the culinary arts.
