This first gastronomic society in the world was founded in 1933 by French-born André Simon (1877-1970), Alphonse James Albert Symons (1900-1941) and a few friends, with its headquarters in London. It is not for profit. Its main objective is to promote the cultivated use of high-quality luxury foods and beverages such as food and wine. This is based on the principle "Not much, but the best". The members are primarily consumers but also producers. At the same time the magazine "Wine and Food" was founded, whose first editor was André Simon. At the time of the foundation of the society, there was a great economic depression. But the end of prohibition in the USA, especially in the year of its foundation, greatly favoured the growth of the membership.
