Welcome to the New York Chapter!


Bringing Food Education to the Table for over 30 Years 

The American Institute of Wine & Food is a non-profit organization founded by Julia Child, Robert Mondavi, Richard Graff and others in 1981 to advance the understanding, appreciation and quality of what we eat and drink.

The New York Chapter is one of many across the United States. Along with our sister chapters and the national organization, we promote an exchange of ideas that benefit both professionals and dedicated enthusiasts through publications and programs. Our Executive Board is made up of volunteers who either work in the Food & Wine industry or who are supporters of AIWF programming and community outreach. 

Membership in AIWF is open to all. It is a wonderful way to meet knowledgeable people in the industry and simply a great way to meet others with common interests. We encourage you to attend one or two of our events as a guest.

We produce several events each year as we strive to continually meet our mission. 

If you would like to get involved or have ideas for events, please send your contact information  to the AIWF New York office at aiwf.nyc@gmail.com

Please see the national organization's web page for more details on the AIWF's mission, national events, and links to our sister chapters.

As always, we encourage everyone to participate in our signature program, Days of Taste®. Please visit our new Days of Taste® on Dem
