I loved reading this little article featured in Olive magazine so thought I’d see what you all think. Personally I am in the ‘firm no’ court as I am yet to find a tasting menu that is a) decently priced b) full of things I actually want to try and c) small enough to actually get through!
I would rather take my time over three full courses (you don’t have to clean your plate after all) and really be able to savour the flavours, rather than getting only 3 mouthfuls and then moving onto something you don’t like as much and wish you had just had the course before!! Having said that I guess if you can only go somewhere once in a lifetime and you reaaaaally want to test out all the chefs skills then perhaps there is some merit in the tasting menu. Just sometimes.
What do you think?
