Vietnam - Philosophy

Bailliage of Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City, January 19, 2024

Our philosophy is simple
" Being chosen for membership in the Chaîne means you exemplify excellence in your life and your work "

As with all Bailliages across the world, planning for our signature events is contingent on restaurateurs and/or hoteliers being properly accepted into the Chaîne.

As we all know, our five original members from modern times, the men who re-instituted the association in 1950 under French law, took an oath which partially reads, “I promise I will always behave with respect and warmth towards my fellow members of the Chaîne in the knowledge that we all share the same ideas and principles.”

In the Bailliage of Vietnam, our philosophy is simple: we honour the craft of cuisine, the culture of the table and the hospitality arts. Our members respect their fellow members, our work and camaraderie are gifts from the heart. Being chosen for membership in the Chaîne means you exemplify excellence in your life and your work and are impeccable in character and word.

The Bailliage supports the underdog by giving from our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fund to local charities, to make Vietnam richer, more vibrant and an unmissable culinary destination.

We extend our sincere gratitude to our generous sponsor, Legle France, for their valuable support and contribution to our endeavours. Born of two great Limoges porcelain dynasties, Legrand and Lebouc, Legle France is a family porcelain business dating back over 100 years.
