Happy 20th Anniversary of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
We’re celebrating the best way we know how, with a trip all over Epcot to bring you
It was a tough job gathering all of the goodies and pricing for you at each of the Marketplace Booths for this year’s festival, but hey… somebody’s gotta do it. Of course, we needed a little sustenance along the way ;). What better excuse to Eat and Drink our Way Around the World again this year!
Then, come on back to see our must-buys among the new items at the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
Chicken Sausage with Creamy Polenta at the Canada Marketplace
This was a favorite of mine back when it was on the menu at Le Cellier, and I was super excited to see it make its way to the festival back then. Sweet, savory, and with just a bit o’ heat, we’re glad it made its way back after being on hiatus for a couple years!
Ice Pop Pomme at the France Marketplace
This is one of those treats that will turn heads for sure, but it packs a wallop! You will KNOW this isn’t for kiddos as soon as you take your first bite. Delicious, and strong!
As always, it’s La Belle Vie in Epcot’s France!
Chilaquiles de pollo at the Mexico Marketplace
We were eagerly anticipating the chilaquiles de pollo at the Mexico Booth this year, and we weren’t disappointed! This flavorful combo of corn chips, queso fresco, seasoned chicken, sour cream, and cilantro quickly won our hearts. The shrimp taco is good, but this is even better.
Liquid Nitro Chocolate Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel at the Chew Lab
I enjoyed the Liquid Nitro Chocolate Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey Caramel at the Tables in Wonderland preview dinner, but this Chew Lab dessert continues to be great here in the actual festival setting. The portion was HUGE (not sure how much longer that will continue), so it’s definitely possible to share.
Yuca Souffle Topped with Griddled Cheese at the Dominican Republic Marketplace
The Dominican Republic Booth is back with a bang! It’s been on hiatus since 2007, and it’s made our Must-Try list with the Souffle de Yuca. A Yuca Souffle, yeah, sure… but JUST LOOK at the beautiful pile of GRIDDLED CHEESE on top of it!
The Pescado here at DR is also fantastic and very worth trying, but when you’ve got seared cheese on the menu you just shouldn’t pass it up.
Citrus Thistle at the Scotland Marketplace
Now, if you’re game to try some of the new Traditional Haggis at the Scotland Booth… well, that’s for YOU to decide ;).
Coconut Porter Float at Desserts and Champagne
Now, you may know that items at Desserts & Champagne Booth have rarely impressed me in the past. But that was all before the Orange Blossom Brewery Toasted Coconut Porter Float with Caramel Ice Cream came into my life.
