Kathmandu, March 7
The French Embassy in Nepal today organised a press conference to introduce the fifth edition of Goût de France (Good France).
Goût de France is a unique global gastronomical event held on five continents in over 150 countries and has entered its fifth consecutive year. This global event will see about 5,000 chefs making a “French dinner” with a local twist on the same evening (March 21) with one common objective: celebrate responsible French gastronomy with greater concern for the environment with the help of local talent and products.
During the press conference organised at the Résidence of France, French Ambassador to Nepal François–Xavier Leger talked about the gastronomical values that are common in both Nepal and France.
He said, “As a Frenchman, it gives me immense pleasure to see the importance being given to developing a food culture and being innovative. I have found that Nepal and France share common values when it comes to gastronomy: Like in France, Nepal also believes in shared meals, in the friendly atmosphere.”
Ambassador Leger also highlighted how gastronomical partners participating in this Good France event spread the message of a new Nepal: a young, dynamic, vibrant country that is open to the outside world.
