My First Tasting Menu

SusanB | Sep 21, 2001 10:53 AM

Hi. Am headed to Santa Barbara this weekend for the firm retreat, and we are going to the Wine Cask for a tasting menu. I have read the posts about the WC, which seem to range pretty dramatically, and that's fine with me, it's a firm dinner, I didn't choose it.

But what I am wondering about, is, what should I expect from a tasting menu? I have a vague notion of them bringing the dishes to the table one at a time, with a different wine for each. I also have a vague notion of them maybe saying something about each wine, introducing it a bit. Is this accurate at all?

I'm looking forward to it, and would love any advice.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
