Good France 2019 Recap

As has been done every year since 2015, Port of Spain hosted the Good France event on March 21, this time with five participating restaurants. This global event celebrating French gastronomy, good taste, joie de vivre and the art of eating well, was held simultaneously at Aioli Restaurant, Fanatic Kitchen, Mélange and Zazou Kitchen in Port of Spain and, for the first time, in Lopinot at Café Mariposa. While only one restaurant patricipated in the event in 2015 and three last year, 5 chefs and tehir teams took part this year, which demonstrates the growing success of Good France in Trinidad and Tobago and the public appeal of French cuisine and its values.
