Jerémy Cannesan, a young chef from the Meert restaurant, is the winner of the French national «Jeune Chef Rôtisseur 2014» competition organized by the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs France. The competition took place at Le Cordon Bleu Paris on March 22, 2014 and was supervised by Chef Jacques Henrio, ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ and Culinary Advisor to La Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, by Le Cordon Bleu Chefs Instructors Chef Franck Poupard and Chef Jean-Jacques Tranchant, and by Patrick Subreville, ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France Métallier’ in charge of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs competitions.

For this competition, Jérémy Cannesan has been trained by Chef Maxime Schelstraete from Meert Restaurant, opened since 1761 in Lille.

Within four hours, they had to prepare their menu (starter/main course/dessert) based on ingredients from a mystery box. Each menu has been examined by a jury, composed of numerous personalities from the world of gastronomy, including  Marie Sauce, France "bailli"  and President of the “Corporation des Rôtisseurs”.

Jerémy Cannesan will participate in the international final of the “Jeune Chef Rôtisseur” that will take place in Durban, South Africa, on September 2014.

The “Corporation des Rôtisseurs” was founded in 1248 under the reign of Saint-Louis.  The rôtisseurs were very privileged in that they were allowed to roast geese.  In 1950 the “Corporation des Rôtisseurs” was restructured and became “La Confrérie de La Chaîne de Rôtisseurs ». The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs has continued to expand and today counts more than 30 000 members throughout the world.
