As you absorb all of our coverage of the 2017 D23 Expo, you may work up quite a hunger. Forgive us, then, for reminding you just how delicious the upcoming 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival is going to be.
Disney released the menus for all 35 marketplaces earlier this week, and now we all get a closer look at exactly what sweet and savory sensations are in store for us. The Orlando Sentinel’s Lauren Delgado recently reported on her first-hand look at some highlights of this year’s menu. Here are just a few dishes off the long list of things to enjoy at the Festival:
Avocado crema with strawberries, yellow cake and tortilla streusel from Active Eats.
Seared scallops with roasted corn and butterbean succotash and chili-chipotle butter from Coastal Eats.
The Cheese Trio (Profiterole topped with Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Cheese and Orange Apricot Jam, Smoked Salmon Pinwheel with Boursin Shallot and Chive Cheese and Everything Seasoning and Strawberry Macaroon with Boursin Pepper Cheese) from The Cheese Studio Hosted by Boursin® Cheese.
Smoked corned beef with crispy potatoes, pickled onions and blonde ale beer fondue featuring BelGioioso Romano and America grana cheeses from Flavors from Fire.
Teriyaki-glazed SPAM hash with potatoes, peppers, onions and spicy mayonnaise from Hawai’i.
Madras red curry with roasted cauliflower, baby carrots, chickpeas and basmati rice from India.
Olive oil cake with powdered sugar and lemon curd from Spain, and lastly:
Thai curry beef with steamed rice from Thailand.
Hopefully looking at all of those tantalizing dishes inspired you to plan your trip over to the Food and Wine Festival (Aug. 31 – Nov. 13), or, at the very least, grab yourself a snack. You’ll need your energy as you join us for all of the important D23 Expo announcements right around the corner.
