A Proud History of Culinary Kinship

First established in 1248, la Chaîne des Rotisseurs is the longest-standing dining guild in the world. For almost 70 years, la Chaîne has celebrated unforgettable food, wine, hospitality and friendship in the spirit of the evolution of gastronomy.


The Canadian Chapter was inaugurated in Montreal in 1960 with additional Chapters now established in 11 additional cities including Victoria, Vancouver, Okanagan Valley, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City, Saint John and Halifax (Click here fo contact information for any of our local Chapters). The Canadian Chapter continues to grow and expects to soon open new Chapters in parts of the country not currently served.
