Good France / Goût de France: the participating restaurants

 

On Thursday 19 March 2015, all around the world, restaurants will host more than 1,300 dinners to celebrate France’s gastronomy by inviting the public to share a “French dinner”.

Among them, 6 South African restaurants have been selected: 6 Spin Street, Frères Bistro in Cape Town, EAT restaurant, Sel et Poivre, The Forum Company in Johannesburg and Fusion in Durban.

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.
