Goût de / Good France event to celebrate French gastronomy.
On 21 March, over 2000 restaurants in 150 countries will participate in the Goût de / Good France event to celebrate French gastronomy. This event, orchestrated by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, and Chef Alain Ducasse, is inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the “Dîners d’Épicure” (Epicurean Dinners) initiative in 1912. The aim is to showcase the French lifestyle, regional products and, more broadly, to promote France as a tourist destination worldwide.
The Goût de / Good France menu includes an aperitif with finger food, a starter, one or two main course(s), a cheese platter and a dessert, accompanied by French wines and champagnes.
More than 1300 restaurants participated in the first, 2015 edition around the “French-style menu”. In 2016, over 1715 chefs participated in the event which highlighted recipes inspired by French expertise. The Goût de / Good France dinner was also served in 150 French embassies, across the seas on-board Ponant Company cruise ships, and in the air for 24 hours, on Air France flights.
This third edition will also spotlight culinary training schools and hotel business schools. Our gastronomy is the only one that trains so many chefs worldwide. It is actually regarded as the leading culinary school in the world. Thus, schools and apprentices worldwide will participate in the event to concoct “French-style” dinners on the evening of 21 March.
