4TH GOÛT DE FRANCE / GOOD FRANCE EVENT
Goût de France / Good France is a unique global event held on 5 continents in over 150 countries which, for this fourth consecutive year, will involve French embassies abroad and chefs from around the world.
They will all offer “French menus” on the same day, Wednesday 21 March 2018. This fourth year will see some 3,000 participating restaurants, including 1,500 chefs currently registered in France.
And for the first time, there will be a regional focus with the Nouvelle Aquitaine region selected as guest of honour. Alain Ducasse also wanted this year’s event to be an opportunity to pay tribute to Paul Bocuse (a renowned French chef who died in january 2018) with the participating chefs having the opportunity to include one of Paul Bocuse’s dishes or a dish inspired by him in their menus.
“Traditional or modern, there is only one cuisine... good cuisine.”
French gastronomy has become one of the key drivers of France’s attractiveness and cultural outreach. The wealth of France’s cuisine and the inclusion of the “gastronomic meal of the French” on the UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage make France a unique destination offering a wide variety of ever-changing gastronomic experiences.
FRENCH CHEFS ON BOARD
Since November 2017, restaurants around the world, from fine restaurants to high-quality bistros, have been invited to apply on the www.goodfrance.com website and offer a menu showcasing France’s culinary traditions. An international selection committee of chefs, supported by the embassies, approved the list of participating chefs.
