Induction Gala BY MARSHALL L. BERENSON, Northeast Chambellan Provincial/Boston Bailli BOSTONIANS SURE DO love a celebration! Tea party in the harbor? World champion teams? Bring it! Yet for Boston Bailliage members, whose chapter has been going strong for forty-nine years, nothing compares to the annual holiday induction gala. The most recent one, on December 13, was held in the city's most beautiful din- ing room—BOND Restaurant at the Langham Hotel Boston. Maître Hôtelier Ronald Pellerine joined the group for the induction ceremony. Executive Chef Mark Sapienza—a longtime friend of the Boston Bailliage—hosted the celebrated Langham Saturday Chocolate Bar at the Boston Grand Chapitre in 2008. His French culinary techniques, including goose roasting and gilding, are of the high- est order. Chambellan Provincial/Bailli Marshall Berenson inducted twelve new members, elevated two confrères, awarded two commandeur pins, and presented the Bronze Mondiale Medal of Honor to Vice Echanson David Berman and the Bronze Star of Excellence to Maître Hôtelier El-Sayed Saleh. A harpist serenaded the assembly with dulcet tones, and holiday carolers interjected merry cheer while the superb Langham team delivered the wonderful meal with panache. As many revelers remarked, the evening epitomized what the Chaîne is and should be!
