Events  Goût de / Good France
19/03/201500:00 TV5MONDE

The French Minister of the Foreign Affairs Laurent Fabius and the French Michelin starred Chef Alain Ducasse, supported by French embassies and partners (among which TV5MONDE), have decided to shake the French gastronomy in 2015!
This will be done through an international event happening on March 19th called:

“Goût de / Good France“ 
Goût de France literally means “Taste of France”).


The good recipe for this perfect French culinary experience:
For this event recipe, you need 1000 plus excellent chefs from across 5 continents. (The chefs have been selected by a committee of international chefs, led by Alain Ducasse)

Ask them to compose a dinner “menu à la française” involving:

_a cocktail with Champagne and Gougères, OR iced Cognac and foie gras
_a cold starter
_a hot starter
_fish OR seafood
_meat OR poultry
_a selection of French cheese
_chocolate dessert
_and last but not least: French wines

These dishes should be promoting vegetables and seasonal ingredients, but avoid high amounts of fat, sugar and salt.


Mix everything together. When everything is ready on March 19th dinner time, sprinkle with lots of fun, and serve at room temperature with important values such as the pleasure of sharing with others. The whole event experience should respect several concepts such as the “bien manger”, and consider healthy food and preserve the environment.

Restaurants chefs who are taking part in this project have been advised to donate 5% of their benefit to local NGO dedicated to health and environment.

We can’t wait to discover together the 2015 values of the French Gastronomy. In the meantime, TV5MONDE has found a way to keep you waiting!
