Presentation of the event

On April 4th, we invite you to a very exclusive evening in Québec City, in the presence of our ambassador Marina Orsini and in partnership with the Club des Chefs des Chefs. This internationally renowned association brings together chefs from 29 countries around the world. For this second edition of the Exquisite Evening, presented by Metro, we are honored to welcome the Italian President's chef, Chef Fabrizio Boca.

The event will be co-chaired by Geneviève Bouthillier from the CDPQ and Julien Genevée from Deloitte.

Once again this year, gastronomy, networking, and conviviality await you during this evening: your support will help Tel-jeunes' mission of making Quebec the best place for teens to live!

Club des Chefs des Chefs

The Club des Chefs des Chefs was founded in 1977 and is the only group of its kind in the world, bringing together the chefs of some thirty heads of state. Each year, these maestros of culinary culture meet in a different country to explore its gastronomy. These meetings are an opportunity to organize a charity dinner in aid of a local association (which they also do throughout the year for various causes), to meet the men and women in power in the country, and to exchange views with the press - it's not uncommon for national and international TV channels to cover the event!

True ambassadors of gastro-diplomacy, members of the Club des Chefs des Chefs are considered essential to the well-being of political leaders. As their slogan puts it: “If politics divides people, a good meal always brings them together” — a phrase coined by Club founder Gilles Bragard, which perfectly illustrates the role of chefs des Chefs in world diplomacy.

After Queen Elizabeth II, Pope Francis, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel, and Pedro Sánchez, now it's your turn to enjoy exclusive recipes from the Club des Chefs des Chefs!
