On Monday, 21 March 2016, in 150 countries around the world, restaurants and embassies offered 1700 dinners to celebrate France’s gastronomy by inviting the public to share a “French dinner”.
In each participating restaurant, the event pay tribute to a vibrant, open and innovative cuisine, while remaining true to its values of sharing, pleasure, respect for good food and for the planet.
Nearly a third of the tourists who come to France cite wine tasting and gastronomy as being among the main reasons for their choice of destination; Operation Goût de France therefore highlights the French art of living and regional products, while at the same time promoting France as a destination.
Following the success of the first edition, this initiative will continue every year, on March 21, French gastronomy and the values that it embodies will therefore be celebrated around the world.
