Goût de France / Good France is a unique global event organized by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and the 3* chef Alain Ducasse.

The event is 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 to celebrate France’s gastronomy by inviting the public to share a “French dinner”. In each participating restaurant, the event paid tribute to a vibrant, open and innovative cuisine, while remaining true to its values of sharing, pleasure, respect for good food and for the planet.

Inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the “Dîners d’Épicure” (Epicurean Dinners) initiative – the same menu, the same day, in several world cities and aimed at as many diners as possible – in 1912, Goût de France/Good France reproduces that beautiful idea with the desire to involve restaurants all around the world.

This gastronomic journey is a perfect illustration of two important aspects of French culture: promoting local specialities and openness to the outside world.

This fourth year will see some 3,000 participating restaurants, including 1,500 chefs currently registered in France, and and 150 embassies over five continents in a celebration of French gastronomy.

Since November 2017, restaurants around the world, from fine restaurants to high-quality bistros, have been invited to apply on the event’s website and offer a menu showcasing France’s culinary traditions. An international selection committee of chefs, supported by the embassies, will approve the list of participating chefs and ensure the quality and coherence of the menus.

In 2018, Goût de France / Good France wished to shine a spotlight on a region, Nouvelle Aquitaine. A melting pot for outstanding French wines, with the global brand of Bordeaux as the figurehead for the whole region, Nouvelle Aquitaine has a rich variety of food and wine experiences. The products of Nouvelle Aquitaine will therefore be showcased in the menus served in a selection of restaurants in France and abroad.
