On 21 March, over 2000 restaurants in 150 countries will participate in the Good France/ Goût de 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.
In Australia, 19 chefs from around the country 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.
From Perth to Sydney, going by Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne, the restaurants will showcase the French lifestyle, regional products to promote the “gastronomic meal of the French” inscribed on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Media are welcome to directly contact the restaurants in regards to the event.
