About the Director
A year ago, married couple Marc and Rachel made dinner reservations at the world-famous restaurant Chakula on the Catalan coast. By the big night, however, they'd already spent several months divorced, living in different countries. Upon discovering Chakula is closing its doors forever, they both decide to show up—as do an eccentric Irish widow, a solitary man of mysterious origins, Rachel's new fiance, and two Japanese businessmen competing for the head chef’s attention and their overeager translator. An enjoyable ensemble film, TASTING MENU is a love letter to fine dining and transitory connections.
