I am delighted to present the first quarter 2019 programme. Once again your committee and a number of members have worked very hard to bring you a superb selection of very interesting food events and some great wine tastings, including wines that one very rarely has the opportunity to drink.

This is also the time when you need to renew your subscription for 2019.  You can do this on line when you make your bookings, or send in the form enclosed with your programme with a cheque. 

Our food programme this time includes an opportunity to learn about and experience sous vide cooking techniques, as well as a Celebration post New Year Dinner at Marcus Wareing’s Tredwells, lunch at the spectacularly refurbished Roux at the Langham, and a very well-priced Charles Dickens dinner at the George and Vulture.

There is a also a variety of wine tasting opportunities, including red Burgundy, 2005 Bordeaux revisited and a rare opportunity to taste wines from the historic region of Moldavia.

We always welcome comments, whether good or critical to keep us on our toes and would encourage members to propose new ideas for tastings and dinners.

Finally, on behalf of your committee we thank you for your continued support.  Please don’t forget to renew your subscriptions for 2019!

With best wishes

Jeffrey Benson – Chairman London Branch
