chefsgoutdefranceGood France

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Covent Garden takes part with the third edition  “Gout de France/ Good France”, special event orchestrated by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development.

More than 1500 Chefs from all over the world will cook a dinner to pay tribute to the excellence of French cuisine and its capacity to innovate and unite people around the common values of sharing and enjoyment in a planet-friendly and healthy way.

The aim is to showcase the French lifestyle, regional products and, more broadly, to promote France as a tourist destination worldwide. A third of tourists have in fact said they visit France to enjoy its cuisine, including the “gastronomic meal of the French” inscribed on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

On 21 March 2016, over 1715 chefs participated in the event which highlighted recipes inspired by French expertise. The Goût de/Good France dinner was also served in 150 French embassies, across the seas on board Ponant Company cruise ships, and in the air for 24 hours, on Air France flights.

Our Executive Chef Jeremy Page designed a special GOOD FRANCE MENU
