Goût de / Good France: A worldwide culinary celebration on 19th March!
"On the same day, 1400 chefs around the globe will create a unique French dinner. Beyond a celebration of French cuisine, Goût de / Good France pays respect to today's cuisine: humanist, energetic, diverse, and relevant. Contributing Goût de / Good France chefs all share the same values: sharing, enjoying, and respecting good food and the planet." Alain Ducasse
Inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who started The Epicurean Dinners - the same menu, the same day, in several world cities, and aimed at as many diners as possible - in 1912, Goût de / Good France reproduces this beautiful idea with a desire to involve chefs from around the world, in this special event. Each chef will create a French-themed menu, which includes a French apéritif, a cold starter, a hot starter, a fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese (or cheeseboard), a chocolate dessert, French wine and digestif. While the menus will be reflective of French gastronomy, the dishes will not be strictly traditional: participating chefs will integrate their own culinary culture and style. Executive Chef Alexandre Nicolas outlined a 6-plate Menu featuring dishes such as the Marinated sea bream, citrus, or the corn-fed chicken breast, macaroni au gratin and for dessert, a succulent Chocolate tart. Goût de France / Good France 6-plate Menu £65 with optional wine pairing £45, including taxes and excluding service charge.
