FOUNDERS’ LUNCH - 10TH JULY 2022
The Founders’ Lunch was once again hosted by Executive Vice-President Andreas Antona at his Michelin-starred restaurant, Simpsons, Edgbaston, Birmingham. Founder members of the Midlands Association of Chefs and the Chefs and Cooks Circle which merged to form the BCF, get together each year with Honorary and Committee members, past and present, and enjoy the opportunity to reminisce and discuss times past and present.
BCF member Bernard France read through the names of the original Founders and paid tribute to those no longer with us.
After a Champagne and Canapé reception, everyone enjoyed an outstanding lunch, with thanks to Chef Director, Luke Tipping and to Gian-Giacomo Stella, Director of Wine for the excellent choice and well-balanced wines.
Special thanks also to Simon Smith of Aubrey Allen for their sponsorship towards the lunch.
Another very enjoyable event for members who had travelled from far and wide to attend this special occasion.
