 First, the Society - briefly.

Objectives - 2


The Society achieves its objectives, among other ways, as follows:
 

the promotion of a broad knowledge and understanding of both wine and food

  • the magazine
  • national events
  •  
  • international events
  •  
  • availability of monographs on specific topics within the wine and food domain
  •  
  • support to the Branches
     
  • provision for independent members


the enhancement of their appreciation


 

  • an amalgam of the above  [more later]

 


the nurturing of camaraderie among those who share the pleasures of the table

 

  • The Society provides plenty of tables! 


    The nuturing is carried out at the events above

  • Interesting menus at all meal occasions and interesting speakers at special events

  • Time at the events for all to converse, fork in one hand and glass in the other when there is a meal

     


In Andre Simon's  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.”


 

You can now see how the Society
 

  • brings together and serves all who believe that a right understanding of good food and wine is an essential part of personal contentment and health  .

  • fosters an intelligent approach to the pleasures and problems of the table which offers far greater rewards than the mere satisfaction of appetite.”


     
  • keeps up to date with the original aims of the Society and ensures that they are relevant in a much-changed wider social context.
