For the second consecutive year, Good France will celebrate French gastronomy in various locations worldwide on 21st March 2016. Over 1700 chefs on all five continents will join the event on the day of Spring.
Good France (Gout de France), organized on the initiative of Alain Ducasse and the French ministry of Foreign affairs and international development, showcases the French way of life, regional products, and France as a tourist destination. Now more than ever, gastronomy is a key part of France’s appeal to tourists
Inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the “Dîners d’Épicure” (Epicurean Dinners) initiative in 1912 (the same menu, on the same day, in several world cities, for as many guests as possible), Goût de France / Good France recreates this wonderful idea by involving restaurants around the world.
Each recipe will be based on cuisine that uses less fat, sugar and salt and shows concern for “good food” and the environment.
The price is at the restaurant’s discretion and each participant will
commit to donating 5% of the proceeds to a local NGO promoting health
and the environment.
Dinners served simultaneously in participating restaurants will honor the merits of French cuisine, its capacity for innovation, and its values: sharing, enjoying, and respecting the principles of high-quality, environmentally responsible cuisine.
