The Réunion des Gastronomes was formed officially in London in August 1899 with the object of endeavoring to raise the standards of hotel keeping and catering; of promoting stability of employment; and of exchanging ideas and opinions of value on all questions concerning the profession. Made up of many of the senior figures from the hotel and catering industry the objects are as important today as they were then.
The organisation, set up in the last days of the nineteenth century, was devised to protect in anyway possible, the interests of its members. It also has a mission to develop, support and promote the culinary arts.
Membership is restricted to just 200 but is generally kept at 160. To apply for membership, visit 'Becoming a Member' on this website or contact the Hon Secretary
