‘Good France’ in Ghana:
The chefs proposed a "French-style" menu at the residence with a traditional French aperitif, a cold starter, a warm starter, a classical beef casserole, a French cheese, a colorful dessert, wines and a French digestive.
A unique opportunity to savour and make France savour
It was an opportunity to share with as many people as possible the values that are dear to the French and that we must continue to defend with enthusiasm: conviviality and pleasure.
On the occasion of the "Goût de France/Good France" operation, the entire French network was mobilized to promote French-style gastronomy.
At the Embassy residence, guests were invited to share this dinner with the Ambassador, H.E. Anne Sophie Ave.
Special dinner in a Provence atmosphere
The same night, a prestigious dinner was held by Ambassador of France to Ghana Anne Sophie Avé, at the Residence of France in Accra in a typical Provençal atmosphere.
