The South Australian Bailliage of Chaîne des Rotisseurs held a Chapitre and Gala Dinner at the National Wine Centre on the 25th of November. This sold-out event saw members inducted to Maître Rôtisseur, Professional du Vin, Chef Rôtisseur, Dame de la Chaîne, Chevalier and members inducted to OMGD.
The evening commenced with canapes served with Champagne Jacquart. Following seating the Chapitre commenced with Maître de Cérémonie Norman Harrison inducting and promoting members.
A full five course menu with curated wines was prepared by the excellent team from the Wine Centre. Member and Cooper, Andrew Young provided the cask which was filled with Teeling Irish Whiskey to add to the casks owned by the Bailliage. The cask was piped in by piper Iain Carr much to the delight of members attending. Of course, a ‘wee tipple’ was required just to make sure the contents were satisfactory. A Christmas photo booth provided some lovely images for members with additional images available shortly via a link in an email.
On behalf of the Bailliage of South Australia I would like to welcome our new members and congratulate those who received promotions. Thank you to Norm and serena and the hard working committee who contributed to making this evening a great success.
Wishing all members and partners a wonderful festive season and a safe and happy new year.
