On Thursday, March 19th, 2015, more than 1,500 restaurants around the world will come together to celebrate French cuisine. More than 1,500 menus will be offered in restaurants and embassies in 150 countries and five continents, offering the general public an opportunity to enjoy a dining experience à la française.
At each participating establishment, the event will pay tribute to a type of cuisine that is not only vibrant, open, and innovative, but also one that stays true to its values: the importance of sharing, enjoyment, eating well, and respecting the planet. French cuisine is accessible to everyone, from bistro-style cuisine to its signature tables d’exception. It is made from fresh, in-season ingredients, with very little fat, sugar, or salt.
