58th Grand Chapitre de Grande Bretagne Edinburgh, 6–9 July 2017

Dear Members, Chère Consoeurs, Cher Confrères It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for Chaîne GB’s 58th Grand Chapitre in the historic city of Edinburgh. This will be our second time in Scotland’s capital and sure to be equally popular. The city offers a wealth of interesting things to see and do. We suggest you add a few days to the official programme to see it all and perhaps explore the highlands and Islands whilst you are there. We purposely chose mid-summer for the event to be able to enjoy long days of sunlight and to enable you to make the most of your visit. Our base will be the splendidly refurbished Waldorf Astoria Hotel, the ‘The Caley’, at the end of Princes Street with fine views to the Castle and a great spa for all the sybarites. The first of our dinner venues is the delightful New Club — new in 1787! Then the Grade II listed Castle Suite in The Caley, followed by the Sir Walter Scott Suite in the Balmoral Hotel and lastly the Royal Yacht Britannia. In the Chaîne tradition the teams in all these venues have planned great menus reflecting both location and time of year and you are assured to leave saying ‘wow’. For those of you for whom this will be your first trip to Edinburgh, we strongly recommend taking the Three Bridges trip on Friday and the Open Top Bus Tour of the city centre on Saturday as the fastest way to gain an appreciation of the city. Other events can take you on a canal boat, to the home of the Earls of Elgin or to learn a little more of single malt whiskies. Providing encouragement and help to the less fortunate in life, particularly in the hospitality industry, is one of our charitable aims and we will celebrate this with a grand raffle at the Gala Dinner in support of The Clink.

On Sunday evening the Chaîne Worldwide Dinner is a once in a lifetime opportunity to dine as would have royalty, heads of state and prime ministers in the unique State Dining Room on board the Royal Yacht Britannia. Last time we had a long waiting list for the Royal Yacht and so we recommend early booking. We look forward to welcoming you all, together with your guests, to a long weekend of cultural interest, culinary and vinious excellence and, most of all, great camaraderie. Vive la Chaîne!

What began with a spark… emerges as an icon.

The difference is Gaggenau. We have been perfecting one oven for 30 years. Our latest rendition accentuates its distinctive design: the door panel is now created from one imposing 90 cm wide sheet of 3 mm high-grade stainless steel. It represents one vast entrance to culinary potential. This remodelled, hand-crafted work of art represents the culmination of our finest principles, skills and ethos. We christened it the EB 333 in recognition of our 333 years of working in metal. This has always been more than an oven; it is a promise to create masterpieces. For more information and a list of partners, please call 0344 8928988 or visit www.gaggenau.com. Alternatively please visit Gaggenau London, 40 Wigmore Street, London, W1U 2RX.


FALKIRK WHEEL CANAL BOAT TRIP Our trip starts at the famous Falkirk Wheel, the world’s only rotating boat lift. It connects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. The wheel raises boats by 24 metres, but the Union Canal is still 11 metres higher than the aqueduct which meets the wheel. Boats must also pass through a pair of locks between the top of the wheel and the Union Canal.

The craft for the day is the surprisingly roomy Wooden Spoon. The journey continues leisurely past The Kelpies, 30-metre-high horse-head sculptures a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland. The Waldorf Astoria will provide a picnic lunch to be enjoyed at your leisure as the boat journeys through the Lothian countryside.

City Sights Vintage Bus Tour Broomhall House

The capital of Scotland since the 15th Century, Edinburgh stands on seven hills creating the dramatic skyline of this lively cosmopolitan city. Compare Edinburgh’s Old Town, where families lived in cramped conditions and rubbish was thrown out of the windows, to the elegant Georgian New Town with its three main streets and a square at either end. Hear about the hangings that took place in the Grassmarket as you marvel at the impenetrable Castle Rock above you and hear about the attempts to capture Edinburgh Castle See the Royal Mile which joins Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House and park — the Queen’s park with Arthur’s Seat, the extinct volcano at its centre. Have your camera ready for a fantastic guided tour through this beautiful city

The Three Bridges Enjoy magnificent views of the world famous Forth Bridges, now including a third bridge, from open top deck as you cruise downriver past Inchgarvie and towards Inchcolm. Known as the ‘Iona of the East’, Inchcolm has been a significant place in Scottish history and lore, and continues to engage the imagination today. Onboard commentary tells you of the features as they pass, and the skipper gives live input whenever some wildlife is sighted. You can see seals, comical little puffins, cormorants, Eider ducks, fulmars, gannets and guillemots as well as occasional sightings of porpoise and dolphins. On returning to land a lunch awaits at The Hawes Inn.

The Balmoral Hotel With a prestigious address, 1 Princes Street, the hotel was built for the North British Railway and sited adjacent to Edinburgh’s Waverley Station. It was opened on 15 October 1902. Originally known as the North British it was acclaimed as one of the great railway hotels. After major refurbishment it reopened in 1991 as The Balmoral — which means ‘majestic dwelling’ in Gaelic. Since 1902, the hotel’s clock has been set three minutes fast to ensure that the people of Edinburgh wouldn’t miss their trains. This is still the case today. The only day that the clock runs on time is on 31 December (Hogmanay) for the city’s New Year celebrations. The clock tower, at 190 feet (58m) high, forms a prominent landmark in Edinburgh’s city centre.

The Induction Ceremony will take place in The City Chambers. Located on the Royal Mile, in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic capital, it is the home of the City’s government. We will be privileged guests of the Lord Provost. The ceremony will be held in the Council Chamber followed by a reception in the European Room.

The Sir Walter Scott Suite is a glorious room stretching the length of one side hotel with superb views to the castle. Maître Hotelier, General Manager Richard Cooke and his team will work their magic for our Gala Dinner, which has been designed by Maître Rôtisseur, Executive Chef Jeff Bland.

THE SCOTCH MALT WHISKY SOCIETY The society buys single cask whiskies which must pass the uncompromising noses of an expert Tasting Panel — a secretive group of independent whisky connoisseurs from all walks of life – before being deemed worthy of an iconic Society green bottle. The selection criteria are simple: quality and interest. All the Tasting Panel’s work is performed with no information on age, origin or cask type, to ensure Society whiskies are always bottled when they are ready, whether young or old, Highland or Lowland, sherry casked or exbourbon. Members will be offered an insight into these rare whiskies.

The Royal Yacht Britannia Launched by the Queen in 1953, this magnificent ship has played host to some of the most famous people in the world. Heads of State, Monarchy and Prime Ministers have all enjoyed this very special ship. But, above all, she was home to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family. Furnished to her personal taste, each room was filled with photographs of her children, treasured family heirlooms, much-loved personal possessions and gifts from across the globe.

The ship had a full complement of around 300 Royal Yachtsmen and Royal Household staff who were able to put on the most splendid of state occasions from dinners to investitures. The ship was de-commissioned in 1997. She is only open to the public for daytime tours. We have arranged for the exclusive use of the ship for the evening.
