Hello, Fellow Members!

We’ve had a couple of great events so far this year, and more are on the way. I thought I’d take a moment to give a quick update on some upcoming events. 

Our first event this year was a wonderful pair of back-to-back l’Ordre Mondial events at Clos de la Oyster Barre, hosted by Vice Conseiller Culinaire Honoraire Matt Batey. These were both a lot of fun and a real treat from the kitchen, and the wines and other beverages selected by Taylor Simpson were outstanding.

Our second event was the first Diner Amîcal hosted at the Carriage House and they did an excellent job.  Maître Sommelier Cam Pinkney was our host that evening, and what a great event.  The food was terrific, and the wines were spectacular.

April 20 is World Chaîne Day, and we don’t have an official event planned, but I encourage all of our members to go out for dinner at one of our Chaîne Establishments. We would love it if you wore your ribbons. As a special gift, we have World Chaîne Day pins for all of our members who dine at a Chaîne establishment that night wearing their Ribbons.  Please make sure you let them know you’re a Chaîne member when making a reservation.  Here is a list of our current member Establishments:

  • Alloy
  • Calgary Zoo
  • Carriage House
  • Delta Calgary South
  • The Dorian Hotel (The Wilde)
  • Hawthorn Dining Room Palliser
  • Hotel Arts & Hotel Arts Kensington
  • Hyatt Regency
  • Queens & Vero Bistro
  • Teatro Group
  • Calgary Golf & Country Club
  • The Petroleum Club
  • Calgary Winter Club
  • Glencoe Club
  • Pinebrook Golf & Country Club
  • The Ranchmen’s Club
  • The Malcolm Hotel
  • The Post Hotel

Our next event is our traditional weekend at the Post Hotel, this year a week later than in years past, and it will include both an l’Ordre Mondial event on the Friday evening and a sure-to-be spectacular Diner Amîcal on the Saturday night.  There are still spots available for the weekend if you are interested.  This event is May 24 & 25.

Chevalier Robert Kulhawy is once again organizing the La Paulée de Calgary (Burgundy wine festival), and he extends a warm invitation to any Chaîne members who are interested in attending any of the events to join the festivities.  Details can be found on the event website LINK BELOW; I will be attending as the first year was tonnes of fun, and I love Burgundy wine.  The events take place April 24 – 27.


July 21 will be a Diner Amîcal  hosted by Maître Rôtisseur Rogelio Herrera at Alloy.  I love their patio, and this will be Rogelio’s third Dinner. I’m super excited to see you all there on July 21.
