On 21 March, over 2000 restaurants in 150 countries will participate in the Goût de/Good France event to celebrate French gastronomy. This event, orchestrated by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development 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.
On the evening, 20 chefs in Australia 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 to promote the “gastronomic meal of the French” inscribed on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
In Australia, 20 restaurants will participate this year!
