BY MARTIN PERHAM, Vice Chargé de Presse THE SALT LAKE City Bailliage, which was founded on June 1, 1976, celebrated its fortieth anniversary on May 21 at the Salt Lake Country Club. Eight-four members and guests attended this spectacular black- tie event. At the reception, attendees sipped Lanson Gold Label Brut 1976 from magnums. Bailli Délégué National Harold Small presided over the inductions of four chevaliers and three professional members. In addition, three confrères received longevity awards, and three officers were acknowledged for being origi- nally inducted as professional members. Chef Rôtisseur Melvin Harward's elegant menu was a celebration of modern gastronomy. Vice Echanson Mike Hickey selected the stellar wines with guidance from Vice Echanson National des Jeunes Sommeliers David Merrill, who kindly donated Henri Boillot Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2010, and Vice Chargé de Presse Martin Perham, who contributed Pichon-Longueville Baron Pauillac 2001. Attendees received gifts of Riedel Riesling glasses etched with the Chaîne logo. Bailli Délégué National Small presented Bailli Robert Miller with a Bronze Star of Excellence for his dedicated service to the bailliage. Chef Rôtisseur Harward also received a Bronze Star of Excellence for executing many wonderful Chaîne dinners over the years. An anniversary cake decorated with the Chaîne logo was created by pastry chef Vice Chargé de Presse Perham.
