Goût de France /Good France is back for a 6th edition in South Africa
From Thursday, 14 October 2021, Goût de France /Good France is back for the 6th edition in South Africa as we celebrate French cuisine and our shared passion for gastronomy as part of the international event.
The unprecedented health crisis not only saw the cancellation of the 2020 event, but also placed severe pressure on the restaurant and food industry as a whole.
Supported by the French Embassy in Pretoria and the Consulate General of Cape Town, the 2021 edition in South Africa will aim to promote the revival of the restaurant industry in the country, with a focus on French gastronomy.
From 14 to 22 October 2021, the event will see a special French lunch and dinner in Pretoria and Cape Town, as well as dedicated menus at restaurants around the country. Patrons will have the opportunity to experience a taste of France locally and will stand a chance to win exciting prizes, including a return flight to Paris.
In 2010, UNESCO registered “the gastronomic meal of the French” as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity. Following this, in 2015, the multi-starred chef Alain Ducasse and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs created the Goût de France /Good France event, in order to promote French cuisine, its actors and its know-how, all around the world.
This year’s edition will focus in particular on the cultural and culinary heritage of the Centre-Loire Valley Region in France, while also promoting more eco-friendly gastronomy.
The South African edition this year has been made possible thanks to the support of JCDecaux, Air France, Advini, Bridor, L’Oréal and TotalEnergies.
