USA Visit by the World's
Most Exclusive Gastronomy Club!

The “G20” of gastronomy, under the presidency of Monaco Chef Christian Garcia, Le Club des Chefs des Chefs (CCC) held their annual summit in Washington, D.C. in early November… it’s the world’s most exclusive club: All members must be Chef to their nation’s head of state or government.

On Day One in D.C., they volunteered at DC Central Kitchen, prepping meals for local charities. They were invited to the White House for a tour and lunch, followed by an evening reception hosted by the French Ambassador Laurent Bili and Mrs. Sabine Bili-Raczy at the Ambassador’s Residence.
The event attracted more than 300 guests and honored US representatives of the French gourmet food industry and included many local chefs and food industry leaders. The beverages, products and dishes offered for tasting were provided and/or prepared by these professionals. Also on offer was a selection of cocktails supplied by La Distillerie de Monaco.
The CCC also visited many local DC-area sites (Monticello, the Pentagon), were hosted for an Ambassador’s lunch (with representatives from the Embassy of their home nations), at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel, and were feted at a beautiful reception hosted by the Italian Ambassador Mariangela Zappia. They were farewelled by Cuisine Solutions founder, Stanislaus Villgrain at his Georgetown residence.
The CCC, founded in 1977 by Gilles Bragard, is a gathering place where chefs can exchange ideas and showcase their culinary talents. CCC President is Chef to HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, Christian Garcia, and Vice President is Mark Flanagan, Chef to HM King Charles III of the UK. Their motto is, “If politics divides men, a good table always reunite them…”
