When it comes to food, the French don’t do things by halves. It should come as little surprise then that this year sees the launch of the second Good France event, a global celebration of the country’s gastronomy to surpass all others.

The day was created in 2015 to mark the inclusion of French cuisine on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list, but is set to grow even bigger in 2016.

On the 21st of March, more than 1500 chefs in restaurants on 5 continents will be going French for the day to “showcase the vibrancy, creativity and innovation of French cuisine”. From bistros to Michelin-starred venues, the restaurants chosen have devised menus to promote French gastronomy with fresh, seasonal and local produce.

Our readers once voted French cuisine the world’s 7th finest, but this event is another reminder that, for many, it will always be number one. Do you agree?
