“Goût de France / Good France”
In 1912, Auguste Escoffier started Les Dîners d’Épicure (Epicurean Diners): one day, one menu, served in cities around the world, to as many guests as possible. In 2015, the first edition of Goût de/Good France took the idea further, bringing all categories of restaurants together globally. The second edition of this international event, taking place on 21st March, 2016, will mark, once again, the concrete demonstration of French cuisine’s recent listing in the “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” category by UNESCO, due to its influence on the world.
