Goût de / Good France

Goût de / Good France will celebrate French gastronomy in various locations worldwide on March 21, 2017. A total of 2,000 chefs on all five continents are expected to join the event on the eve of spring. Dinners served simultaneously in participating restaurants will relish the merits of French cuisine, its capacity for innovation, and its values: sharing, enjoying, and respecting the principles of high-quality, environmentally responsible cuisine. About 65 restaurants have registered to participate this year in India.

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. Goût de/Good France aims to bring this idea to life by assembling all kinds of restaurants across the globe. This international event, which first took place on March 19, 2015, aims to spread French cuisine around the world following its inscription to UNESCO's list of "Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity."

Goût de/Good France’s aims to promote France and hopes to increase international visibility. It also aims to send a strong message to the world, through dynamic and creative chefs. French cuisine is both traditional and contemporary. Traditional French cuisine is not a dominion of the 21st century culinary scene. Participating chefs are encouraged to blend their own culinary culture to that of France, rather than discounting it. Food enthusiasts also stand chance to win a trip for 2, to France, when they book through Zomato.

During the Goût de/Good France event, an international communication plan is 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 and JC Decaux.
