Like almost everything to do with finest cuisine, the association Jeunes Restaurateurs d´Europe originated in France. In 1974, the first young top chefs got together and founded the “Jeunes Restaurateurs”. It wasn’t long until ambitious colleagues in Belgium, Germany, Italy, France and other European countries founded national associations – „Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe“ was born.

Despite of its rapid growth, the organisation’s philosophie has remained the same until today: „We, the ‚Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe’ are aspiring to bring to life a neverending movement, which holds the great heritage of the art of cooking and savoir-vivre in highest esteem and strives to bring to perfection and pass on this heritage.“

The result of the long and fruitful relationship between Apollinaris and the Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe have been products such as our Apollinaris Selection, which was developed specifically for restaurants, and our edition of Riedel glasses. The newest collaboration is the convenient and stylish: twin bottle cooler.
