A total of 16 restaurants, 15 in Belgrade and one in Zrenjanin, will take part in the fifth edition of Goût de France (Tastes of France) in Serbia. French menus will be offered on March 21, whereas some restaurants will feature this special offer throughout the week, from March 18 through 24.
The concept is the same everywhere in the world. Restaurants, modest bistros and the most exclusive spots on the gastronomic map of the world will offer their guests French menus.
Goût de France was created at the initiative of one of the most famous French chefs, Alain Ducasse, and the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs. Promoting this project, the French minister of foreign affairs reminded that their gastronomy had been included on the UNESCO world heritage list.
On this occasion, French Ambassador to Serbia Frederic Mondoloni said for eKapija that the interest in this event in Serbia grew year by year, as shown by the number of restaurants involved. He added that the focus in 2019 would be on “socially responsible” gastronomy of the French region of Provence.
– The interest of restaurants in taking part in this event is growing. At the first edition of Goût de France in 2015, five restaurants participated. The second one involved 15, whereas, this year, there are 16. The restaurants are expected to offer menus prepared in line with the imperatives of the modern age, which are the protection of nature and healthy meals. Also, this year, the focus is on environmental protection, so restaurants are encouraged to use vegetables, fruit, organic products and support the fight against plastic waste – Mondoloni says.
Mlekoprodukt, a part of the French Savencia Group, presented its offer as a partner and the only cheese producer at the event, on the occasion of the official beginning of Tastes of France.
