About Good France
Participating restaurants have been selected after designing their menu based on the following sequence: aperitif and canapés, starter, main course(s), cheese, dessert(s), French wines and champagnes. For restaurateurs, Good France is the chance to belong to an international label liaising casual and bistro Chefs to Michelin star Chefs, all in the name of the “cuisine à la française”.
Based on Auguste Escoffier’s “Dîners d’Epicure”, Good France was launched on the initiative of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs in partnership with Chef Alain Ducasse to boost the visibility of French cuisine around the world. In 2018, over 3000 restaurants participated which represented 250,000 meals and 8,000 guests in 156 embassies.
More information on France’s culinary tradition, “the art of eating well” :
The “gastronomic meal of the French” is now inscribed on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. With French cuisine, the food is the epicenter but still not without the whole experience. All senses should be looked after – smell, sound, sight and flavour.
