French Embassy in Kathmandu organized a press conference on March 5 at the Residence of France to introduce the fourth edition of “Goût de France Good France”.
Goût de France / Good France is a unique global event held on 5 continents in over 150 countries which, for this fourth consecutive year, will involve French embassies abroad and chefs from around the world. It unites chefs from all over the world on the same evening (March 21) with one common objective: celebrate French gastronomy with the local products and talent. This fourth year will see some 3,000 participating restaurants worldwide.
During the press conference organized at the Résidence of France, French Ambassador to Nepal, Yves Carmona said, “there is a traditional strong link between diplomacy and gastronomy.
According to a press release issued by Embassy of France Kathmandu, there was a cuisine "à la française" already in the 14th century, well before there were permanent Embassies (16th century).” He also said that “although the origin of the event is French, it can be considered a very Nepali event since almost all restaurants or schools are run by Nepalis. It perfectly exemplifies the spirit of openness of French gastronomy and is a testament to Nepali talent”.
This year, following restaurants and schools, will participate in this prestigious event from Nepal The Old House Pvt. Ltd, Garden Terrace / Soaltee Crowne Plaza, La Terrace / Global Academy of Tourism & Hospitality Education (GATE), Rox Restaurant /Hyatt Regency Kathmandu, The Chimney Fine Dining / Hotel Yak & Yeti, Silver Mountain School of Hotel Management, Olive Garden / Radisson Hotel Kathmandu and Pauline's Garden
