For the third consecutive year this spring, on March 21, 2017, Goût de France/Good France will bring together over 2,000 chefs on five continents to celebrate French gastronomy. In each participating restaurant, this event, which will take the form of a dinner, will pay tribute to the excellence of French cuisine, its capacity for innovation, and the values that it represents: sharing, pleasure, and a respect for good food, good company, and the environment.
Last year in Cyprus, 6 restaurants participated to the operation. We are expecting more for 2017 ! From haute cuisine to fine-dining bistros, chefs from all over the world are invited to participate in this great celebratory event.
For this, they can register online until next January, 30th:
During the Goût de/Good France event, an international communication plan is made available to participating chefs in an effort to promote their dishes, and their savoir faire, all over the world with active support from French embassies, Atout France and media partners, France Media Monde, TV5 Monde and JC Decaux.

Gaining a label of excellence, thanks to a selection by the Chef Committee;
Belonging to an international community of more than 2,500 chefs;
