On Monday night, over 160 people gathered at the Sofitel Wentworth Garden Court Restaurant to sample the exceptional flavours of the French Pacific Islands at the Goût de France / Good France Dinner in Sydney. by New Caledonia Tourism (NCTPS), Tahiti Tourism and Atout France, the dinner featured distinguished chefs, Nicolas Bourgois (chef at Carpe Diem, Nouméa) and Sebastien Prevel (chef at Le Méridien, Bora Bora) and was attended by key trade partners including New Caledonia Travel Connection, Excite Holidays and Helloworld.

Goût de France / Good France is an international effort to promote the excellence of French cuisine and bring people from all over the world together, through their shared love of food. The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and celebrity chef Alain Ducasse based the event on the century old initiative from Auguste Escoffier, who created “Les Diners d’Épicure” in 1912. Now with a fresh feel and a presence on the global stage, Good France has been transformed into a celebration of French cuisine with over 2,000 restaurants and 150 countries participating.

New Caledonia Tourism’s Australian Director, Caroline Brunel said the Good France dinner highlighted New Caledonia’s distinct gastronomic offerings and helped to strengthen the destination as a culinary hot-spot.

“We are very proud to see New Caledonia’s cuisine being an integral part of the Good France Initiative. Our key focus this year is to communicate to both trade and consumers the variety of culinary experiences on offer at this destination and right on our doorstep!”

The Good France dinner is aligned with New Caledonia’s recently launched campaign #TasteNewCaledonia, which positions the French Pacific Island as a place of diverse and distinctive landscapes, reflected in its delicious and diverse gastronomic offerings. The dinner and the culinary prowess of Nicolas Bourgois aim to bring the flavours of the destination to Australians’ plates and position New Caledonia as a foodie destination.
