March 19th, 2015
a worldwide culinary celebration.
1000 chefs, 150 countries, 5 continents
“On the same day, 1000 chefs around the globe will create a unique French dinner. Beyond a celebration of French cuisine, Goût de / Good France pays respect to today’s cuisine: humanist, energetic, diverse, and relevant. Contributing Goût de / Good France chefs all share the same values: sharing, enjoying, and respecting good food and the planet.” Alain Ducasse
Organized by Alain Ducasse and France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Goût de / Good France will be observed on March 19th.
Inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who started The Epicurean Dinners - the same menu, the same day, in several world cities, and aimed at as many diners as possible - in 1912, Goût de / Good France reproduces this beautiful idea with a desire to involve chefs from around the world, in this special event.
Each chef will create a French-themed menu, which includes a French apéritif, a cold starter, a hot starter, a fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese (or cheeseboard), a chocolate dessert, French wine and digestif, and priced at the restaurant’s discretion. While the menus will be reflective of French gastronomy, the dishes will not be strictly traditional: participating chefs will integrate their own culinary culture and style from haute cuisine to bistro fare. On the night of March 19th, only the Goût de
/ Good France menu will be proposed to clients at restaurants participating in this great culinary event.
Goût de / Good France defends a cuisine accessible to all, based on the freshest seasonal ingredients available, highlighting the value of healthy eating by emphasizing the use of vegetables, with minimal fat, sugar and salt content. Each menu will honor the merits of French cuisine, its capacity for innovation, and its values: sharing, enjoying, and respectful of the planet and its inhabitants.
Participating restaurants are encouraged to donate 5% of Goût de / Good France menu proceeds to a local NGO promoting health and the environment.
Goût de / Good France invites the world on an unforgettable journey, which Alain Ducasse restaurants wish to extend to their guests.
