For one more year, on March 21, French cuisine is celebrating. Like last year, French cuisine will be honored worldwide as an open, lively and innovative cuisine, which stays true to its values: sharing, enjoyment, respect for good nutrition and the planet.
So, for the third consecutive year, Tuesday March 21, through Goût de France / Good France 2000 chefs will join forces. 2000 restaurants in the 5 continents will come together and will serve a dinner inspired by French cuisine and expertise.
Goût de France / Good France, is organized on the initiative of Alain Ducasse and the French Foreign Affairs and International Development Department. By the standards of Auguste Escoffier, who introduced in 1912 the ‘Epicurus’ Dinners”, the same menu, the same day in many cities in the world with the greatest number of diners, Goût de France/ Good France initiative follows this beautiful idea involving restaurants from around the world.
The purpose of this event is to showcase the French lifestyle, regional French products and to promote France as a tourist and gastronomic destination worldwide. The Goût de France / Good France menu includes an aperitif and finger food, a starter, one or twoo main courses, a cheese platter and a dessert accompanied by French wines and champagnes.
This year Greece is the third country in number of entries, with a significant increase in the number of chefs and restaurants that participate (15 restaurants in 2015, 21 restaurants in 2016). 65 restaurants in 15 cities of Greece are preparing a menu inspired by French gastronomy. A unique opportunity to taste and be enchanted by French flavors.
