France launches its first global gastronomic journey: Goût de / GOOD France

By Alison Hird

More than a thousand chefs around the world are today serving up a French dinner, in celebration of French gastronomy and savoir faire. The gastronomic/diplomatic operation called "Gout de France - Good France" is the brainchild of top chef Alain Ducasse and French foreign minister Laurent Fabius. Aware that the promotion of French culture begins at the table, it aims to encourage tourism and give a much-needed boost to the image of French cuisine.
