The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is the world’s oldest food and wine society, tracing its roots back to 1248.

The members and guests enjoyed a specially curated, 6-course menu prepared by Chef Jack Hao, an award-winning, Michelin-starred chef, who is best known his neoclassical style of gourmet Chinese cuisine. The evening began with champagne, red carpet, and camaraderie, and the meal courses were followed by pairings of wine, featuring sake (rice wine) from Uka Sake, a company who hand crafts their sake in Japan with organic rice from California. As a grand finale to the evening, José Luis Nazar, a 30-year member of the Beverly Hills Chapter and owner of the Houdini Estate, shared a very old bottle of wine, a 1795 Madeira.
