Full Euro-toques Membership is for Chefs and Professional Cooks. However, we also have a membership category for Small/Artisan food producers and Associate Membership for larger suppliers, industry service providers and related bodies/organisations.
Euro-toques is open to any chef or cook who takes an interest in and actively promotes the ideals of the organisation. Members do not have to be formally trained ‘chefs’ but would normally be active in the sector, either in a kitchen or teaching environment, and have proven experience.
The current membership includes chefs and cooks working as consultants, freelance chefs, caterers and tutors/lecturers and running or working in cookery schools, restaurants, country houses and hotels.
Membership of Euro-toques Ireland is open to chefs and cooks throughout the island of Ireland, and chefs working abroad who want to keep in touch with the Irish industry.
Members must meet strict criteria and adhere to the Euro-toques Commitment on food sourcing. Applications are carefully checked and members are randomly audited to ensure all information is correct and to uphold the standards and reputation of the organisation.
Chefs working directly with a Euro-toques member Head Chef may join as Additional Members.
All members, sponsors and associates are selected in accordance with the ideals and objectives of Euro-toques and must be approved by the Board of Commissioners.
