About Good France:

Inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the "Dîners d'Épicure" (Epicurean Dinners) initiative – the same menu, the same day, in several world cities and aimed at as many diners as possible – in 1912, Goût de France/Good France reproduces that beautiful idea with the desire to involve restaurants all around the world.

Each chef will offer a "French-style" menu in their restaurant with a traditional French aperitif, a cold starter, a hot starter, fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese (or cheeseboard), a chocolate dessert, French wines and digestifs, while remaining free to highlight their own culinary traditions and cultures.

The Goût de France/Good France initiative is organized by Alain Ducasse, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development in partnership with Atout France.
