Over 2,000 chefs from 150 countries will participate worldwide in the Good France (Goût de France) festival to celebrate French gastronomy on March 21.

Fifty-one restaurants in China will take part in this event, and four of them, named Sofitel Le Grill, Langham Place, Jardin d’Olive, and Bel-Ami, are in Guangzhou.

This event, organized by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, aims to pay tribute to the excellence of French cuisine and promote the values that it represents: sharing, pleasure, and a respect for good food, good company, and the environment.

Each restaurant will prepare a special menu for the event, and these menus, including an aperitif with finger food, a starter, one or two main course(s), a cheese platter and dessert, accompanied by French wines and champagnes, will be served for a week beginning March 21. In 1912, fabled French gastronomer Auguste Escoffier launched the (Dîners d’Épicure) (Epicurean Dinners): one day, one menu, served in cities around the world, to as many guests as possible. In 2015, Gout de France takes the idea further, bringing all categories of restaurants together globally. More than 1,300 restaurants participated that year, and more than 1,715 chefs took part in 2016.
