NEW DELHI: An idyllic French meal that in popular culture evokes images of romance and good life, can now be savoured in a restaurant in India, which joins other countries to lay out a "French style" dinner.



A total of 1000 restaurants world over including 48 from various cities across India will simultaneously serve a French menu on March 19 as part of the "Good France" project.



The global event has been initiated by Laurent Fabius France's Foreign Minister with noted chef Alain Ducasse who is reputed to have built up an empire in haute cusine.



The project aims to reproduce the concept of celebration of French food begun around the year 1912 by Auguste Escoffi, a chef who launched the Epicurean Dinners initiative – the same menu, the same day, in several world cities and aimed at as many diners as possible.



Each chef will offer a "French-style" menu in their restaurant with a traditional French aperitif, a cold starter, a hot starter, fish or shellfish, meat or poultry, a French cheese or cheeseboard, a chocolate dessert, French wines and digestifs, while remaining free to highlight their own culinary traditions and cultures.



In France no meal is complete without cheese and at least one type of wine. The French pride themselves in their ability to lay out multi-course meals a fact recognised by Unesco, which has listed 'The gastronomic meal of the French' as a intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
