For the 5th consecutive year the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs celebrates French gastronomy with a unique culinary celebration that will take place around the globe from 21 to 24 March 2019. Good/Goût de France is a gourmet festival to celebrate French gastronomy held across the globe! Thousands of dinners “à la française” on the five continents and nation-wide gourmet initiatives. This year’s focus is on socially and environmentally responsible cuisine. The festival was first introduced in 2015 following the inscription of the ‘Gastronomic Meal of the French’ on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
In 2018, 83 restaurants in Greece took part in the Good/Goût de France event and created original menus to promote French gastronomy in Greece. The event is organized under the auspices of the French Embassy in Greece.
In addition to the Good/Goût de France event, the French Embassy in Greece is hosting MaziChef, a culinary contest in search of ‘The Best Greek Éclair’. The final is scheduled to take place at the French Embassy in Athens on Monday, March 18 following 4 regional selections in Athens, Thessaloniki, Patra and Chania.
