This association was created in 1986, its objective is to maintain the culinary traditions of Rouen and one of the jewels of its gastronomy: the duck in blood.

The first are professionals serving duckling à la rouennaise or duck in blood in their establishment. The Order confers on their work all the guarantees of a perfectly mastered tradition.
The second are gourmets who appreciate the recipe and share the objectives of the Order. In addition, belonging to either of these two categories, are addedHonorary Canardiers.
The mayor of Rouen is by right Grand Honorary Canardier.
