Good France 21 March 2018
On 21 March 2018, Goût de/Good France will bring together 3,000 chefs and 3,000 menus on five continents.
On 21 March, over 3,000 restaurants in 150 countries will participate in the Goût de /Good France event to celebrate French gastronomy. This event, orchestrated by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and Chef Alain Ducasse, is 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.
Chefs from all over the world will cook a 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 enjoyment in a planet-friendly and healthy way.
The aim is to showcase the French lifestyle, regional products and, more broadly, to promote France as a tourist destination worldwide. A third of tourists have in fact 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.
Goût de/Good France benefits from an international promotional campaign enabling all participating chefs to showcase their cuisine and expertise with the active support of French embassies, Atout France and media partners, France Médias Monde, TV5 Monde and JCDecaux.
This year, Le Meridien Dhaka and its Latest Recipe restaurant is hosting Goût de France/ Good France food festival for the foodies around Dhaka in collaboration with the Embassy of France in Bangladesh.
