Goût de France / Good France 2018 - 4th edition
For this fourth edition, Goût de France will involve French embassies abroad and the chefs from some 3,000 participating restaurants around the world. They will all offer “French menus” on the same day, Wednesday 21 March 2018.
This unique global event is held on 5 continents in over 150 countries.
French gastronomy is one of the key drivers of France’s attractiveness and cultural outreach. The wealth of France’s cuisine and the inclusion of the “gastronomic meal of the French” on the UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage make France a unique destination offering a wide variety of ever-changing gastronomic experiences.
In 2018, Goût de France / Good France wished to shine a spotlight on a region, Nouvelle Aquitaine. A melting pot for outstanding French wines, with the global brand of Bordeaux as the figurehead for the whole region, Nouvelle Aquitaine has a rich variety of food and wine experiences. The products of Nouvelle Aquitaine will therefore be showcased in the menus served in a selection of restaurants in France and abroad.
Alain Ducasse also wanted this year’s event to be an opportunity to pay tribute to Paul Bocuse with the participating chefs having the opportunity to include one of Paul Bocuse’s dishes or a dish inspired by him in their menus.
In Trinidad and Tobago, French Gastronomy will be celebrated during special dinners on March 21st at Zazou Kitchen, located at One Woodbrook Place, Port of Spain, Mélange Restaurant on Ariapita Avenue and Aioli at Ellerslie Plaza. French chef Pierre-Yves le Bihan of Zazou, who has been working in Trinidad for years, chefs Moses and Colette Ruben of Mélange and chef John-Michael Aboud of Aioli, will share their most delightful dishes with their guests, in the presence of employees of the Embassy of France.
