La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs
Bailliage de Victoria ~ Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Our annual Champagne Extravaganza initiates the celebration of the fine dining in Victoria. If you would like to know more about joining our select group please see the membership section below.


Membership in the Confrérie de Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is by invitation upon nomination by two current members.  Prospective non-professional members are expected to have attended at least two functions as guests of their sponsors and to be familiar with the history and traditions of the Chaîne as presented on this web site.  In all cases you will need sponsors who are members of the Chaîne to recommend you for membership. You may apply for membership at any time by contacting any member, the Bailli of the Victoria chapter, Mr. Ian Batey, or our Vice-Argentier Ms Gail Gabel.  All will be pleased to provide additional information and assist you in completing the appropriate interactive application form on your computer. 

Membership requires payment of a one-time initiation fee and the annual dues for the current year. Non-professionals have the rank of Chevalier or Dame de la Chaîne upon initiation. Professional ranks are assigned based upon training and current position. A description of common Chaîne ranks may be found here.

The Victoria bailliage forwards a portion of the dues to the National Headquarters for support of national and international events, the Jeunes Chefs  competition and the national and international Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Magazines. The remainder is retained for the local young chefs competition, culinary scholarships at Camosun College and administration of the Victoria Bailliage. The Victoria Bailliage also has a "Wine Cellar" for the purchase of wines to be used in support of Chaîne dinners at a later date.
