GORGEOUS!!!! Bet it tastes wonderful. I'm not a chef, not even close, but what in the world is a degustation meal? I have never ever heard that term before.

Cindy - a degustation menu is a tasting menu of smaller portions in which a foodie can savor LOTS of different things, a true foodies heaven!

A degustation menu is about the FOOD, not the company
