The early spring Good France event
on 21st March 2017
2000 chefs and 2000 menus worldwide
On 21st March, over 2000 restaurants in 150 countries will participate in the Goût de/Good France event to celebrate French gastronomy. An international selection committee of chefs has approved the list of participating chefs on 28 January 2017.
This event, orchestrated by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and chef Alain Ducasse, is inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the “Dîners d’Épicure” (Epicurean Dinners) initiative in 1912: the same menu, on the same day, in several world cities, for as many guests as possible.
Chefs from all over the world will cook a dinner to pay tribute to the excellence of French cuisine and its capacity to innovate and unite people around the common values of sharing and enjoyment in a planet-friendly and healthy way.
Two restaurants in Karachi have been selected to participate in Good France: Côte-Rôtie @Alliance française and Asia Live @Avari Tower. The two restaurants propose a French Gastronomic Menu on March 21st.

More than 1300 restaurants participated in the first, 2015 edition around the “French- style menu”.
On 21st March 2016, over 1715 chefs participated in the event which highlighted recipes inspired by French expertise.
The Goût de/Good France dinner was also served in 150 French embassies, across the seas on board Ponant Company cruise ships, and in the air for 24 hours, on Air France flights.
This third edition also spotlight culinary training schools and hotel business schools. Our gastronomy is the only one that trains so many chefs worldwide. It is actually regarded as the leading culinary school in the world. Thus, schools and apprentices worldwide participate in the event to concoct “French-style” dinners on the evening of 21 March.
Finally, several French chefs swap restaurants with foreign chefs for an evening in a spirit of sharing and conviviality. Goût de/Good France benefits from an international promotional campaign enabling all participating chefs to showcase their cuisine and expertise with the active support of French embassies, Atout France and media partners, France Médias Monde, TV5 Monde and JCDecaux.
