Epcot Food and Wine Festival Food Pictures: Canada and Australia Booths

It’s time for more 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival booth food pictures! Today we’re headed to two of the most popular booths at the Festival — Canada and Australia!

As always, if you want to see full coverage of each booth, check out our Epcot Food and Wine Festival Booth Pages! Click on any booth or country name for detailed information, menus, photos, and prices.

Australia

Australia brings back the favored lamb chop for the third year in a row, pairing it this time with a potato-goat cheese salad, which is quite good! A fun flavor and great texture. Again, the lamb deserves all of the accolades it’s getting.

Grilled Lamb Chop with Potato-Goat Cheese Salad and Shiraz Reduction -– $5.75

A surprise winner for me at the festival this year was the Shrimp on the Barbie with Pepper Berry Citrus Glaze. The shrimp were very well-cooked and I really enjoyed the (more spicy than I expected) glaze!! Great flavor on these.

Shrimp on the Barbie with Pepper Berry Citrus Glaze -– $4.50

And, again, the Lamington is a fantastic dessert. Offering three different textures and flavors — moist sponge cake, rich chocolate ganache, and coconut — it’s like eating a yummy, cakey Mounds bar!

Lamington (chocolate and coconut covered Yellow Cake) -– $3.00

Canada Booth

Over in Canada this year, some fan favorites return and there are some new things to sample.

The quintessential Moosehead Beer and Cheddar Cheese Soup is back again, delighting all!

Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup – $3.75

And the salmon has switched a bit this year, now being served as a Maple and Moosehead-beer Glazed Salmon with Barley Salad. Our thoughts? We liked last year’s better, but this version is fine as well. I like the Barley salad this year better than last year’s Lentil version.

The Apple Ice wine seen in the photo below next to the salmon is the bubbly version, though you can get it sans effervescence as well. I didn’t love this as much as I wanted to; the bubbly made it bitter (in the way bubbly water can be bitter). I bet I would have liked the “still” version of the drink much better.

Once again, the Chicken Chipotle Sausage with Sweet Corn Polenta is a super-winner here. The sausage is very spicy again this year, and the sweet corn polenta is the perfect side dish. The polenta’s relaxed, sweet flavor softens the harsh spiciness of the chicken sausage. The perfect compliment.

We actually brought friends to the festival this year who returned again to this booth for more sausage!

    The Chicken Chipotle Sausage has my name written all over it! Looks wonderful!

  2. Mary says:

    I loved the lamb but wasn’t too crazy about the potato-goat cheese salad and I had been really looking forward to it. But there were a couple of issues…my potatoes were undercooked and I got a portion that had WAY too much of the cheese. I think if there had been a better balance in my portion, and if my potatoes were cooked well, I would have really liked it.

    Sadly, there is nothing here that rushes to my Must List. I can say that I really loved the Chicken Chipotle Sausage with Sweet Corn Polenta last year, but not enough for it to eclipse the prospect of trying something new. I go for the new. Old favorites are there if I have the time.

    What are the actual food serving times at FaWF? I know it’s hours are posted “9 to 9″, Can you have breakfast?

  5. AJ says:

    Julie, the booths open and close with World Showcase — usually 11am to 9pm.

  6. Alan says:

    Seeing these pics and reading the descriptions make me feel so badly we couldn’t make this years event. I would have tried everything shown. Thanks to AJ for making us feel like we are there!

  7. Catherine says:

    If you want breakfast at Epcot you can’t get it in World Showcase unless you want to make a reservation for Akershus. Nothing there besides Akershus opens until 11. If you want to spend a counter credit for breakfast, I think your only option is Sunshine Seasons. Just pastries, you can get those at some of the Joffrey kiosks – but none of them take the dining plan.

  8. Heather says:

    Looking forward to Cheese Soup next week! I think we might have to give the sausage a try as well!
