Goût de France / Good France to return to NZ in 2019! [fr]
On 21 March 2019, chefs from around the world will work to create a French-style dinner, based around socially responsible cuisine. Restaurants, hotels and chefs in New Zealand, Samoa and Cook Islands are invited to register for the fifth edition of Good France/Goût de France! Registration closes on 15 February 2019.
This international event, first held in 2015, follows the inclusion of "The Gastronomic Meal of the French" on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. On the 21st of March, participating restaurateurs offer the opportunity to experience the French art de vivre and pay hommage to French cuisine’s capacity to innovate as well as the values it embodies: sharing, pleasure, respect for eating well, for each other, and for the planet.
In 2019 #GOODFRANCE #GOUTDEFRANCE will celebrate its 5th anniversary and on 21 March, chefs from all over the world will prepare a four-course French menu using seasonal, eco-friendly produce!
The proposed theme for 2019 is sustainable actions in gastronomy to preserve the planet and the French region of Provence.
MPG2019: a culinary journey around Provence
In 2019, Provence will be the foremost destination for gastronomy and as such will be promoted at Goût de / Good France events both in France and internationally. For the first time, the Bouches-du-Rhône department and Provence Tourisme are launching Marseille Provence Gastronomie 2019 (MPG2019), a year of gastronomy in Provence under the patronage of renowned French chef Gérald Passedat. It will be a year of celebrations, meetings between chefs, gourmet markets, picnics, urban vegetable gardens and more — a genuine gastronomic journey through Provence!
Chefs in New Zealand, Samoa and Cook Islands, are invited to prepare a special Goût de/Good France menu, including an aperitif, a starter, one or two main course(s), a cheese platter and/or a dessert, accompanied by French wines and champagnes. This menu can be served during the entire week of 18 March 2019 or on one or several days during this week.
Those participating will be included in the general communication around the event.
Register on GoodFrance/Gout de France by proposing a menu showcasing French gastronomy before 15 February 2019.
