A slice of Switzerland in Soho

Our thanks to Robin Dormer (LGB '69) for once again bringing the London alumni together to celebrate the Escalade. Jenny Hargreaves (LGB '61) and Sally Verity Smith (LGB '75) are his co-conspirators in this endeavour. Robin's report follows!

A mild night in London saw us return, after an absence elsewhere last year, to the St. Moritz Restaurant in London’s Soho district (now the only Swiss restaurant in London). Last year people missed their fondue and Swiss wine, so we made up for it this year with a salad with that unique Swiss-flavoured salad dressing, fondue Neuchâtel and fondue bourguignonne, and copious quantities of Chasselas.

Mysteriously, however, our numbers were much reduced: a record low (for recent years) of only 25. However, those present seemed to enjoy the occasion, and our marmite (supplied as usual from the Alumni Office in Geneva—thank you to them and in particular to Eoghan O’Sullivan there) was very effectively smashed by Tarah Srethwatanakul (LGB '11) and our doyenne, Margaret Spector (LGB '58), accompanied by the traditional recitation Ainsi périssent les ennemis de la République. Roger Murray (LGB '67) and Simone Weiser (LGB '73) have taken some splendid photos.

The participants (all LGB unless stated) were: André Astrow '74, Gilbert Bastyra '66, Monica Bloch '71, Agnes Borges '90, Eugenia Chossudovsky '58, Bea Dal Poz (LGB/La Chât '07) and her partner Edward Studd, Robin Dormer '69, Krysta Gough '91, Data Green '93, Jeremy Green '74, Peter Green '69, Jenny Hargreaves '61, Roger Murray '67, Kim Perry '68, Joseph Rochlitz '74, Quito Sierra '90, Margaret Spector '58, Tarah Srethwatanakul '11, Kelly Stelle '66, Irem Tuğrul '07, Tanawan Wee '10, Simone Wieser '73, Liz Winter '61 and Steven Zimmer '72.
