Goût de / Good France will celebrate French gastronomy in various locations worldwide on March 19, 2015. Over a 1 000 chefs on all five continents are expected to join the event on the eve of spring. 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.
Goût de / Good France is an an initiative of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of International Development and the famous French chef Alain Ducasse
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, Goût de/Good France takes the idea further, bringing all categories of restaurants together globally. This international event, taking place on March 19,2015, will mark the first concrete demonstration of French cuisine’s recent listing in the “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” category by UNESCO, and its influence on the world.
During that day an authentic French menu will be served consisting of the following dishes:
- One traditional French aperitif :
– champagne and gougeres (stuffed or not)
– iced cognac with foie gras
• One cold appetizer
• One hot appetizer
• One fish or shell-fish based course
• One meat or poultry based course
• One or a selection of French cheeses
• One chocolate dessert
• A selection of French wines
• One French liqueur
