The origin of the club,the meeting of passionate people
Created at the initiative of the Tourist Office in 2003, the Club des Toques de Rouen et de sa vallée de Seine invites chef.fe.s and artisans de bouche, passionate about their profession, to preserve our gastronomic heritage and become ambassadors of our destination beyond the borders of Rouen and its metropolis, the Seine Valley and Normandy.
Combining the flavors of the sea with those of the terroir, these “Toques” are making the reputation of the best establishments of our beautiful territory. From traditional cuisine to the composition of more inventive menus, the menus proposed by these chefs.fe.s amaze the palates of the finest gourmets. It makes your mouth water, doesn’t it?
In 2023, the club celebrates 20 years of pleasure and work for the transmissionand the promotion of gastronomic heritage. 20 years of complicity between chefs and food artisans, sharing and exchanges, solidarity actions and promotion of Norman culinary know-how.
