Goût de / Good France to Celebrate French Cuisine in March
Goût de / Good France will celebrate French gastronomy in various locations worldwide on 21st March, 2016. Over 1000 chefs on all five continents are expected to join the event. Dinners served simultaneously in participating restaurants will honour the merits of French cuisine, its capacity for innovation, and its values: sharing, enjoying, and respecting the principles of high quality, environmentally responsible cuisine.
In 1912, Auguste Escoffier started Les Dîners d’Épicure (Epicurean Diners): one day, one menu, served in cities around the world, to as many guests as possible. In 2015, the first edition of Goût de/Good France took the idea further, bringing all categories of restaurants together globally.
The second edition of this international event, taking place on 21st March, 2016, will mark, once again, the concrete demonstration of French cuisine’s recent listing in the “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” category by UNESCO, and its influence on the world.
Goût de/Good France’s objectives are to promote French tourism and cuisine through international visibility, establish the excellent quality, health benefits and contemporary nature of French gastronomy and the range that cuisine covers from bistro to gourmet dining.
During the Goût de/Good France event, an international communication plan will be made available to participating chefs in an effort to promote their dishes, and their savoir faire, all over the world with active support from French embassies, Atout France and media partners, France Media Monde, TV5 Monde.
