#GoodFrance in Canada! [fr]

Press Release


On Thursday, March 19th, 2015, more than 1500 restaurants around the world came together to celebrate French cuisine. More than 1500 menus were offered in restaurants and embassies in 150 countries and five continents, offering the general public an opportunity to enjoy a dining experience à la française.

At each participating establishment, the event paid tribute to a type of cuisine that is not only vibrant, open, and innovative, but also one that stays true to its values: the importance of sharing, enjoyment, eating well, and respecting the planet. French cuisine is accessible to everyone, from bistro-style cuisine to its signature tables d’exception. It is made from fresh, in-season ingredients, with very little fat, sugar, or salt.

  • Vive la cuisine de la France
