The Club des Chefs des Chefs, which is seen as the world’s most exclusive gastronomic society, has extremely strict membership criteria: to be accepted into this highly elite club, you need to be the current personal chef of a head of state. If he or she does not have a personal chef, members can be the executive chef of the venue that hosts official State receptions. One of the society’s primary purposes is to promote major culinary traditions and to protect the origins of each national cuisine. The Club des Chefs des Chefs also aims to develop friendship and cooperation between its members, who have similar responsibilities in their respective countries. <br />
The annual meeting of the Club has been hosted this year in the production site of the Italian rice company called Riso Acquerello. <br />
