David Tetrault, Bailli Délégué Honoraire of Canada, was invited to his first Chaîne dinner in 1983 by his friend and sponsor Hon. Harry Rowbotham, Bailli Régional at the time. Harry was aware of David’s love for cooking and recognized that he might enjoy the experience of the Chaîne.

David joined the organization in Calgary in 1983 with the rank of Chevalier. In 1988 he was promoted to the local council in Calgary with the rank of Vice-Chargé de Missions. David’s enthusiasm for the Chaîne and his penchant for organizational details led to his promotion in 1991 to national Chargé de Missions, then Argentier in 1996.

David worked with Bailli Délégué Hon. Normand Grimard to institute a plan to manage the Chaîne in Canada as a business, making it more efficient and more accountable. David computerized the data base and financials, and he set up systems to assist in the efficient management of the organization.

In 1998 David’s diligent work in Canada was recognized by the international board with his appointment to the Conseil Magistral. In 2002 he was appointed to the Conseil d’Administration, the Executive Board consisting of 15 international members from the Conseil Magistral, chaired by the international President.

David was promoted to Bailli Délégué of Canada in 2007 and remained in that position until 2019.

In 2002 David accepted the additional duty of Chairman of the International Jeunes Commis Rôtisseurs Committee, now the Jeunes Chefs Rôtisseurs, responsible for managing the young chefs’ competition. David is enthusiastic about this aspect of the Chaîne, seeing it as a way to ensure the successful future of the culinary arts and of the Chaîne itself. Along with his committee members, of which half are professionals, David and his Committee revised the competition rules to make the competition more professional and more relevant to modern culinary arts and gastronomy. The changes also enabled host Bailliages to run competitions more effectively because the requirements are now thoroughly comprehensive and unambiguous. When David’s home Bailliage hosted the international competition in 2004 (and again in 2019), it was an excellent test of the reorganization.

David was appointed Chair of the IT Committee in 2016.

David is firmly committed to the ideals of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, and he is honoured to fulfill his national and international duties. David still enjoys the very simple essence of the Chaîne: a fine meal in good company.
In his spare time he still likes to spend time in the kitchen, cooking for his family and friends.

Lois Gilbert, is a culinary devotee and business entrepreneur with over three decades of experience in the food industry. Born into a family of food enthusiasts, Lois learned the art of cooking from a young age, having been raised by a professional baker and cook mother. At the age of 13 , Lois started working with her mother, honing her skills and mastering the craft of cooking. By 15, Lois had already taken the reins, replacing her mother while she was on vacation and cooking for 150 people.

In the early 80’s, Lois started administrating the cooking school of Carens Cooking Company and had the privilege of working with legendary chefs such as Julia Child, Jacque Pepin and Giuliano Buggialli. Lois also had the privilege of being mentored by Caren McSherry. Lois continued to make a name for herself by running a successful catering company in the UK, providing fresh lunches for university students and catering events for the university.

Lois then moved to the Toronto area where she opened her own kitchenware store, catering company and cooking school for local cooking enthusiasts. Lois was named “Retailer of the year” by Retail magazine and made a difference in the community by supporting the local palliative care and regional hospital with fundraising special events.

When Lois moved to Moscow, Russia, she continued to teach classes and cater for the International Women’s Organization. Lois was also a contributing member of the board and joined the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs where she held the positions of Chargee de Missions, Chancelier and eventually Bailli. Lois also became a member of the International Jeunes Chefs Committee in 2011 and continues to serve in that role to date.

With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lois seized the opportunity to teach online classes for team building groups. In 2021, Lois became the Bailli Regional of Val d’Okanagan Bailliage and with the aid and support of local members, Lois has successfully reestablished and grown the Bailliage. Next year, Lois and her team will be hosting the International Sommelier Competition in Kelowna further cementing her legacy as a leader in the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Association.

David was promoted to Bailli Délégué of Canada in 2007 and remained in that position until 2019.

In 2002 David accepted the additional duty of Chairman of the International Jeunes Commis Rôtisseurs Committee, now the Jeunes Chefs Rôtisseurs, responsible for managing the young chefs’ competition. David is enthusiastic about this aspect of the Chaîne, seeing it as a way to ensure the successful future of the culinary arts and of the Chaîne itself. Along with his committee members, of which half are professionals, David and his Committee revised the competition rules to make the competition more professional and more relevant to modern culinary arts and gastronomy. The changes also enabled host Bailliages to run competitions more effectively because the requirements are now thoroughly comprehensive and unambiguous. When David’s home Bailliage hosted the international competition in 2004 (and again in 2019), it was an excellent test of the reorganization.

David was appointed Chair of the IT Committee in 2016.

David is firmly committed to the ideals of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, and he is honoured to fulfill his national and international duties. David still enjoys the very simple essence of the Chaîne: a fine meal in good company.
In his spare time he still likes to spend time in the kitchen, cooking for his family and friends.
