Good France's Chefs
Gourmet Corner

French restaurants around the UK join worldwide celebration of French gastronomy


On 19th March, sixteen London restaurants will be celebrating French Gastronomy and they are joined by restaurants in Oxfordshire, Surrey, Yorkshire, Berkshire and Glasgow in this first Goût de France/Good France initiative.

In total, 1,300 chefs from all five continents join forces for a worldwide celebration of French food and drink.

The event showcases a cuisine that is dynamic, outward-looking and innovative, whilst remaining true to its values of sharing, enjoyment and respect for good food.

In the UK, chefs at 21 restaurants have devised special French gourmet menus, which will be served to diners on 19 March. Menus include a traditional French aperitif, hot and cold starters, a fish course, a meat course, a cheese course, a chocolate dessert and French wines and liqueurs.

A range of restaurants – from local bistros to fine dining – are taking part, and menus start at £19.50. Menus will be based on fresh, seasonal and local produce with reduced levels of fat, sugar, salt and protein. Dishes already announced include scallops with blood oranges, roast partridge breast, wild seabass with celeriac, and white chocolate and rhubarb soufflé.
