Good France, the world’s greatest French dinner [fr]
For the fourth consecutive year, Goût de France / Good France has been a fun celebration of the vitality of French cuisine, forging ties between chefs around the world.
On 21 March in 150 countries, Goût de France / Good France, organized on the initiative of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, boosts the visibility of French cuisine on the world’s 5 continents. From haute cuisine to quality bistro food, offer French-inspired meal in your restaurant and participate in this great celebration.
The Goût de France / Good France menu should include an aperitif with finger food, a starter, one or two main course(s), a cheese platter and/or a dessert, accompanied by French wines and champagnes.
Inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the “Dîners d’Épicure” (Epicurean Dinners) initiative from 1912, Goût de France / Good France involves chefs from around the world and embassies to serve French-style dinners on the same day in various world cities.

The spirit of Goût de France / Good France follows this founding idea with the aim of including all categories of restaurant throughout the world. This international event, which was first held in 2015, follows UNESCO’s decision to put “gastronomic meal of the French” on the intangible cultural heritage list.
Thus on 21 March every year, participating restaurants offer guests the experience of French art de vivre and pay tribute to its capacity for innovation and the values that it represents: sharing, pleasure, and respect for good food, good company and the planet. In 2017, over 2,100 participating restaurants in 150 countries, 250,000 meals and 8,000 guests in 156 embassies. Vitality, modernity, responsibility: gastronomy will be used to showcase France’s positive values, with the warmth associated with the pleasures of good food.
