Charge de Mission for the Cook Island based association Lucile Meyer says that the purpose of the event is to celebrate the induction of new members, while sharing an unforgettable dining experience with the public.
The sold-out event will serve a selection of fine wine to complement the four course fine dining meal that will follow straight after the official welcome at 5pm.
“The welcoming ceremony held before the dinner will be the official presentation of the new membership ribbons,” says Meyer.
Earlier this week Chaine des Rotisseur held a “meet and greet cocktail party” at the Pasific Resort where the organisation’s Australian Conseil Magistral, Norm Harrison commented on the uniqueness of events yet to come.
The plan is to lift the standard of cooking in Cook Islands restaurants and Harrison says that raising the quality of food will help put the country on the map as a place for visitors to come when they are looking for fine cuisine.
“The Chaine des Rotisseurs today is truly an international gastronomic association, dedicated to honouring the preservation of the traditions and practices of the French guild in a completely contemporary and international context,” says Meyer.
“It’s also an association designed for those individuals with a love for fine food and wine, bringing together amateurs and professionals from all over the world, whether they are hoteliers, restaurateurs, executive chefs or sommeliers with an appreciation of fine cuisine.”
Meyer acknowledges all who have supported the association over the years and those who have attended and supported past events and looks forward to seeing more interested members tonight.
