The International Wine & Food Society

The International Wine & Food Society (IWFS) is the world's oldest, most prestigious non-commercial gastronomic association. Its purpose is to increase appreciation of the joys of the dining room table, as well as to improve the food, wine and level of service both in restaurants and at home. The IWFS organises events where like-minded people of all ages meet and enjoy wine and food in good company.

The IWFS Helsinki Branch was founded at Restaurant Särkänlinna in 1987, and there are members in Helsinki, Espoo and Tampere. The Helsinki Branch has held hundreds of events, most of them gourmet meals cooked by the members themselves. Cooking demonstrations and courses have also been arranged at restaurant schools, and members have been invited to a large number of commercial wine tastings and other presentations.

Establishing international contacts is an important activity of the Society, and events include international visits to other IWFS clubs, joint Caribbean cruises and more.
