Restaurant tasting menus offer small portions of several dishes as a single meal.[1] The French name for a tasting menu is menu dégustation.[1] Some restaurants and chefs specialize in tasting menus, while in other cases, it is a special or a menu option. Tasting menus may be offered to provide a sample of a type of cuisine, or house specialties,[1] or to take advantage of fresh seasonal ingredients.

Tasting menus have become increasingly popular during the late 2000s and early 2010s[citation needed].
