Video Playlist

Each chef will offer a “French-style” menu with a cold starter, a hot starter, fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese (or cheeseboard), and a dessert while remaining free to highlight their own culinary traditions and cultures.

The cuisine will be accessible to all, from bistros through to exceptional restaurants, and based on fresh, seasonal and local products. The menu’s price is at the restaurant’s discretion, and they are all encouraged to donate 5% of proceeds to a local NGO promoting health and the environment.


The Goût de / Good France initiative is being organized by Alain Ducasse and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development.
