Jules Bistro Celebrates Gout de France
on March 21
Goût de France is a celebration of French culinary heritage. The event was founded in 2015 by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and renowned French Chef Emmanuel Jointville, in response to the addition of French gastronomy to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Goût de France, also known as Taste of France/Good France, takes place each year on March 21 and involves restaurants and chefs from around the world. The annual event pays tribute to the vitality of French cooking and invites guests to experience French art de vivre through the sharing of a great food, fine wine, and good company.
As described by Michelin star chef and event organizer Alain Ducasse, French cuisine “represents joie de vivre, lightness, optimism, and pleasure.” To enjoy a Goût de France meal is to participate in and honour these defining French values.
Now in its fourth year, Goût de France 2018 will bring together 2,000 chefs from 150 countries across 5 continents to craft 2,000 French-inspired menus. From bistro fare to fine dining, guests around the world will raise their glasses in a collective toast to French cuisine.
Jules Bistro has been bringing joie de vivre to Vancouver since 2007. Under the helm of classically trained French Chef Emmanuel Jointville, who owned bistros in Dijon and Paris before bringing his talents across the pond, Jules Bistro practices a wide range of authentic French cooking.
On March 21st, Jules Bistro will serve a special four-course Goût de France dinner menu. Guests will have two options for their appetizer and entree course, followed by a cheese course and dessert pastries. Dishes focus on French classics including foie gras, lobster bisque, and duck confit. The prix fixe menu will be available for one night only at $42 per person. Pair the meal with an expertly selected flight of four French wines for an additional $28 per person.
Goût de France not only showcases fine French dining, but also forges relationships between international chefs. This year’s participants include Canadian chefs such as Jerome Ferrer of Restaurant Europea, Daven Chowreemootoo of Restaurant Lalox, Chef Lorenzo Loseto of George Restaurant and premiere international chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Thomas Keller, and Joel Robuchon.
