    Toques Françaises Logo

    Founded in the early 2000’s, the aim of the Association des TOQUES FRANCAISES is the promotion of French gastronomy within France and around the world, the protection of quality products and regional produce, ensuring that young chefs are supported and highly trained, and the development of members' skills.

    Led by Marie Sauce since 2015, the Association is open both to all food service professionals and to connoisseurs of fine food (the name in fact refers to a chef’s hat).
    The only condition of membership is true passion for French gastronomy, and the drive to share this as far and wide as possible.
