Celebrating 85 years . .
Learning from masters
Formal but fun
Buying for quality
Awarding excellence, applauding service
Visiting the wineries
Wine, food and friends



Our network of 32 branches in Europe and Africa maintains a balanced event programme. Branch Events cover many of these stages in the cycle of production and ultimate enjoyment of food and wine:
Growing, Buying, Preparing, Tasting, Sharing, Celebrating
Our goals are to
  • visit regional food and, in fortunate countries, wine producers
  • increase our understanding of quality methods of production
  • encourage local restaurants through our IWFS Awards
  • arrange wine tastings and demonstrations of food preparation
  • provide mentoring and friendship to newcomers
  • enhance the camaraderie between members
In these pages you will see how our region and branches have applied these principles to their own events.
The EAC, through the activities of a number of its members, supports the William Heptinstall Memorial Fund, a registered charity, which sponsors an annual award to help young chefs further their careers through overseas stages.
