Goût de/Good France, a huge celebration of French gastronomy in France and worldwide, is back for its sixth edition! Over the years, Goût de/Good France has become an essential gastronomic event, and 2020 is no exception, as it promotes France around the world by combining tourist attractiveness, international promotion of products and emblems of French culinary heritage.


After Nouvelle Aquitaine and Provence, Goût de/Good France will feature Centre-Val de Loire in a series of events in France and abroad. In many ways, the gastronomy of Centre-Val de Loire epitomizes the art of living à la française. It was in that region, in Tours, that ten years ago the European Institute for the History and Cultures of Food initiated and promoted the inscription of the Gastronomic Meal of the French on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.

In partnership with the Centre-Val de Loire Regional Council and Regional Tourism Committee, the region will make gastronomy the focus of its 2020 “Nouvelles Renaissances” Cultural and Tourism Season. The region would like to present to the entire world this special relationship with regional products and gastronomy intrinsic to the landscapes in the heart of France and the Loire Valley in Goût de/Good France events.

THE GASTRONOMIC MEAL OF THE FRENCH is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its inclusion on the UNESCO list!

This sixth edition of Goût de/Good France will be marked by the tenth anniversary of the inscription of the Gastronomic Meal of the French on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.
