The Delhi chapter of the International Wine and Food Society (IWFS) was inaugurated on Sunday, 2nd August with a Champagne Dinner at Le Cirque restaurant, Hotel Leela Palace. Global Brand Ambassador and Asia-PAcific Chair, IWFS, Yvonne Wallis specially flew in for the event.
Founded in London in 1933 by André Simon, the International Wine & Food Society is the oldest, independent gastronomic society in the world. More than 6,000 members are spread across three zones – Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa and the Americas.
The objectives of the Society include bringing together like-minded people who believe that an understanding of wine and food is an essential part of personal wellbeing and health. Another objective is to promote education and knowledge of the wines of the world, and a more discerning appreciation of wine.
Said Yvonne Wallis, “I have no doubt that, as with the Bombay Branch, the Delhi branch will set a very high bar indeed as it explores the mysteries and miracles of wine and food and positions India as a very special hub for IWFS.”
The evening (as the pictures attest) was grand success with a stellar line-up of Champagnes paired with a specially crafted meal by the gifted chef at Le Cirque.
