Whew! There’s been a multitude of news items that have popped up in the Disney Food world, so I decided to devote a post to all of them this morning:
2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Booths
The Food and Wine Festival CMS website is now showing the 27 Epcot Food and Wine Festival International Marketplace Booths slated for the 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival. As we know, these include new additions South Korea and Belgium, and returning booth Singapore. It also includes another new addition, Charcuterie and Cheese (perhaps replacing The Mouse Catch booth)!
Check out the 2009 Food and Wine Festival Booth menus and photos here for inspiration about what might be offered this year!
Food and Wine Festival Event General Info … and Cirque du Soleil News?
The same website also offers information on general timing for each of the 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival seminars, demonstrations, and signature special events. While specific details (e.g. which Chefs will present on which days) have not yet been announced, this information can help with basic trip planning around the Festival:
- Descriptions and Timing for Free and Low-Cost 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Demonstrations and Seminars
- Descriptions and Timing for 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Special and Signature Events
As always, stay tuned to the master 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Page, where we’ll link out to all of the latest news, details, and information.
Taste of Africa Street Party News
A new culinary and cultural experience is coming to Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom this summer. The Taste of Africa street party will take place every evening from July 9th through July 24th in Harambe Village in Animal Kingdom’s Africa.
The party will begin right after Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade and will continue through closing time (even during Extra Magic Hours). Included will be food and beverage tastings, authentic African entertainment, unique merchandise, and more.
New Disney Cookbook on the Horizon
Pam Brandon, Disney’s food writer extraordinaire, will be releasing a new official Disney cookbook this Fall. Currently titled Treasures from the Vault & Delicious New Favorites, I’m eager to see what dishes made the cut! If you’re wondering about the other cookbooks available, check our our Disney Cookbooks post! (Thanks to Stitch Kingdom for the tip!)
Remember, because we’re reporting this news so far ahead of time, details are always subject to change.
Now, in addition to all of that awesomeness, stay tuned tomorrow for an exclusive guest review of the Ariel’s Grotto World of Color Prix Fixe menu!
