BY: Kate Baaba Hudson

The French Embassy in Accra is organising a cooking contest to select a good chef to mark the celebration of Goût de France for this year.

Known also as Good France, the embassy believes that by celebrating the festival, through bringing people together to cook and dine, it will further help to strengthen the ties between France and Ghana.

Good France is an annual and global festival of French gastronomy, held usually on March 21.

This year will mark the fifth edition and all restaurants are invited to register and delight their clients with a French-style meal.

Mr Duenas Yaren, who is in charge of Public Relations at the French Embassy, told the Daily Graphic in an interview that the event is organised and supported by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, and French missions abroad hold special activities for the occasion.

Mr Yaren said the finals of the chefs contest will take place on the evening of March 21.

Three finalists will prepare a French meal on the theme of Provence (the sun-kissed region in south-eastern France) and will each win exceptional prizes.

French meal
Touching on the contest, he said Ghanains who know more than a thing or two about cooking and think they can prepare a French meal for special guests, could take part.

He urged such people to go ahead and register and to prove their worth in the contest, whose registration is open till February 15, 2019.

He said contestants needed to be Ghanaians and have the passion for cooking.

He urged interested persons to register at: http://bit.ly/GoodFrance19GH before February 15th, and send a short video (30 seconds max) to introduce themselves.

They are expected to say why they love cooking and why they desire to enter the contest.

Mr Yaren said it was important that the video be an original reflection of who they are and added that the video will be published on the embassy’s social media networks and will be used to decide the best among them.
