Good France: Celebrate the French gastronomy
From March 21st, Good France returns: the largest event in the world that celebrates in more than 150 countries, the French gastronomy!
Good France: For an environmentally responsible cuisine
In 2019, Goût Good France has had a makeover: this 5th year of the event will see over 5000 chefs participate across 5 continents over 4 days of events celebrating responsible cooking. This year, the Provence region will be in the spotlight and will be showcased during events in France and around the world.
On March 21st : A menu for the planet
Following on from COP21 and the French National Food Conference (Etats Généraux de l’Alimentation), France is at the forefront of global environmental action. The Good France key event showcasing France’s gastronomy has taken a greener approach in 2019 aimed at better respecting the planet’s resources. On 21 March, chefs from around the world will be cooking up a French-style dinner, with a focus on more responsible cuisine. Each menu will present dishes using less fat, sugar and salt, with great concern for “good food” and the environment.
Good France has also decided to join forces with the “No More Plastic” association, represented by Alexandra Cousteau. She will chair a “Good Impact” round table on the issues of environmental and resource preservation, where she will be joined by chefs, scientists, business leaders and other important figures.
Event organized by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and chef Alain Ducasse.
