As part of the “Goût de France” week, from October 14 to 22, many Portuguese establishments have decided to honor French gastronomy by offering typically French menus, dishes or products.
Goût/Good de France will bring together chefs from five continents who will pay tribute to French cuisine, its capacity for innovation and the values it conveys: sharing, pleasure, respect for “eating well”, for their contemporaries and for the planet.
The voluntary establishments, altogether, 24 Portuguese restaurants will participate in the international initiative that aims to celebrate French cuisine, are invited to propose menus with French specialties to celebrate the culinary heritage of the country and in particular this year the Center-Val de Loire region. The participating restaurants then allow the two cultures to be celebrated around a “French dinner”.
France, a model of culinary know-how, will therefore have the opportunity to promote part of its culture internationally through this event. This is carried out at the initiative of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs as well as the chef Alain Ducasse and aims to be part of a responsible and fair approach. Indeed, the question of food is crucial for our environment in the decades to come. Promoting quality products, in terms of taste but also sustainable, such is the objective of this 6th edition.
