International Wine & Food Society at the Bonnington!
With the Grand Opening and the Arabian Travel Market Exhibition over now, we’re catching up with other recent events and news.
At the end of April, the Bonnington played host to a meeting of the Dubai branch of the International Wine & Food Society. IW&FS members enjoyed an olive oil tasting followed by dinner for which Chef Thomas had put together a special menu.
The International Wine & Food Society (IW&FS) is the world’s oldest and most renowned gastronomic society.
The Society’s mission is the promotion of a broad knowledge and understanding of both wine and food, the enhancement of their appreciation, and the nurturing of camaraderie among those who share the pleasures of the table.
The IW&FS is a worldwide organization founded in 1933 by André L. Simon, CBE, Legion d’Honneur (1877-1970), who was renowned as a bibliophile, gourmet, wine connoisseur, historian and writer. In his words, the purpose of the Society “is to bring together and serve all who believe that a right understanding of good food and wine is an essential part of personal contentment and health, and that an intelligent approach to the pleasures and problems of the table offers far greater rewards than the mere satisfaction of appetite.”
Simon’s energy and charm ultimately enabled him to generate branches throughout the world so that today there are more than 8,000 members in 150 branches in 40 countries.
Here are a couple of pictures of the event:
