Goût de France / Good France is a unique global event held on 5 continents in over 150 countries which, for this fourth consecutive year, involves French embassies abroad and chefs from around the world.
They all offered “French menus” on the same day, Wednesday 21 March 2018. This fourth year saw some 3,000 participating restaurants, including 1,500 chefs registered in France. And for the first time, there was a regional focus, with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region selected as guest of honour and a special tribute to Paul Bocuse with the participating chefs having the opportunity to include one of Bocuse’s dishes or a dish inspired by him in their menus.
There are 3 key events this year:
• 21 March, across 5 continents, over 3,000 chefs and 150 French embassies celebrated the vitality of French cuisine.
• For the first time this June, an international gastronomy forum will be held in Paris hosting the sector’s key international players.
• From 21 to 23 September 2018, across France, and for the 8th year running, the key figures of the world of gastronomy will be in action sharing their talents and skills with the public at a large event (La Fête de la Gastronomie becomes Goût de France).
From 2019, all three events will be held together in Q2.
