The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development has once again launched the call to participate in Goût de France (Good France). Celebrating French gastronomy on March 21, the event is expected to gather more than 1,000 chefs from five continents.
Now on its second year, Goût de France aims to pay tribute to the culinary tradition of France, which values high-quality, innovative, and environmentally responsible cuisine and has been included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
Similar to last year, selected chefs all over the world will propose and prepare a “French-style” menu in their restaurant with a traditional French aperitif, a cold starter, a hot starter, fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese (or cheeseboard), a chocolate dessert, French wines and digestifs, while remaining free to highlight their own culinary traditions and cultures.
In the 2015 edition, eight chefs from seven restaurants in the Philippines were among the 1,500 chefs selected worldwide to participate in the event.
Interested restaurateurs and chefs are invited to register until December 18 through the following link: www.ambafrance-ph.org/Gout-de-France-2016.
