The French Embassy in Kathmandu organised a press conference on March 5 at the Residence of France to introduce the fourth edition of Goût de France which is a unique global event held on five 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 local products and talent. This fourth year will see 3,000 participating restaurants worldwide. During the press conference organized at the Résidence of France, French Ambassador to Nepal, H.E. Mr. Yves Carmona said, “There is a traditional strong link between diplomacy and gastronomy. There was a cuisine “à la française” already in the 14th century, well before there were permanent Embassies in the 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 of Nepali talent”.
This year eights organizations will participate in this event from Nepal: The Old House, Garden Terrace at Soaltee Crowne Plaza, La Terrace of the Global Academy of Tourism & Hospitality Education, Rox Restaurant at Hyatt Regency Kathmandu, The Chimney Fine Dining at Hotel Yak & Yeti, Silver Mountain School of Hotel Management, Olive Garden at the Radisson Hotel Kathmandu and Pauline’s Garden.
