The synopsis: One of the greatest restaurants in the world is closing and an eclectic mix of international patrons have arrived in beautiful Catalonia for the final dinner service in this witty and delicious ensemble comedy. As the staff prepare and serve an audacious tasting menu, a young couple~in the midst of a divorce~who made their reservation a year ago (before separating) reunite for this once-in-a-lifetime meal. Can their romance be rekindled with the help of the widowed countess dining with her husband's ashes? Will the brilliant chef be able to pull off a perfect finale?
An Irish and Spanish co-production, 'Tasting Menu,' like all great ensemble dramedies centered on culinary delights, is a crowd-pleasing mishmash of relationships, feuds, and broken dreams that are mended through the simple act of "breaking bread" and the universal appreciation of great food. Similar in style to foodie classics like Babette's Feast, Big Night and Chocolat, 'Tasting Menu' will leave you awash in a European sensation of joie de vivre
