The Ordre des Canardiers
The Ordre des Canardiers. was created in January 1986 by Michel GUERET, Founding President, with 20 personalities who cared for the maintenance of our cultural heritage: culinary art, symbolized by the development of a great regional recipe, Rouennaise Duckling. With the support of Mayor and Senator Jean LECANUET, the Ordre des Canardiers spread in France and even abroad. Its main activity consists in promoting the recipe, informing the public and training chefs and students in catering colleges;
The Ordre des Canardiers and the City of Rouen are linked in two ways : onthe one hand, the Mayor is inducted Great Honourable Canardier and on the other hand, the Canardiers' coat of arms is inspired from the City's.
The members are either professionals, who are inducted Master Canardiers, or gourmets who defend the local gastronomy and are inducted Lady Canardiers or Gentleman Canardiers. Personalities who contribute to the promotion of the Ordre can be inducted Honourable Canardiers.
The members are regularly invited to take part in events including a cultural activity and a meal.
The Ordre des Canardiers is managed by a Governing Board, which elected during the General Assembly.
