The French Ambassador Florence Jeanblanc-Risler will talk about the importance of French gastronomy in the French culture, as well as its influence worldwide and its impact on French tourism. On March 19th, the project Good France/Gout de France is taking place around the world in 150 countries. Restaurants and French embassies will present 1500 menus, based on the structure of the French Gastronomic meal, a seven-course degustation dinner. Florence Jeanblanc-Risler has recently arrived here and New Zealand will be the first country to celebrate Good France with a gala dinner in Wellington with a traditional French menu combined with local produce.

Recipes: Vichyssoise Soup, Baeckeoffe Alsacien, Tarte Bourdaloue
