This event, organized by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development and chef Alain Ducasse, is inspired by Auguste Escoffier, who launched the “Dîners d’Épicure” (Epicurean Dinners) initiative in 1912: the same menu, on the same day, in several world cities, for as many guests as possible. The aim is to showcase the French lifestyle, regional products and, more broadly, to promote France as a tourist destination worldwide.
