Muscat – Over 2,000 restaurants in 150 countries will participate in the Goût de France/Good France event to celebrate French gastronomy on March 21. For the third consecutive year, Muscat is participating in the event by offering three French dinners in three different places, stated a press release.
The Ambassador of France will host a dinner at his residence inviting personalities from the political, business and social world. The InterContinental Muscat and Crowne Plaza Muscat will honour the merits of French cuisine offering a gourmet menu prepared by their chefs.
The Goût de France, orchestrated by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and chef Alain Ducasse, was inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the ‘Dîners d’Épicure’ (Epicurean Dinners) in 1912. The event features the same menu, on the same day in several world cities.
Chefs from all over the world will cook dinner to pay tribute to the excellence of French cuisine and its capacity to innovate and unite people around the common values of sharing and gratification in a planet-friendly and healthy way. The aim is to showcase French lifestyle, regional products and, more broadly, to promote France as a tourist destination. A third of tourists have said they visit France to enjoy its cuisine, including the ‘gastronomic meal of the French’ inscribed on Unesco’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
