It’s time for more 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival booth food pictures! Let’s head over to two extremely popular booths: Italy and Greece!
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.
Italy introduced a new item this year that was just wonderful — the Cappellini con Gamberi Piccanti, or, pasta with spicy shrimp and garlic! It was gorgeous!
I loved the angel hair pasta, which caught the sauce beautifully. The spicy shrimp gave some great flavor to the dish as well.
The ravioli this year is very similar to last year (they’re just using the Italian name this year ;-D). Delicious — the perfect comfort food!
Of course, how can you go wrong with a real Italian cannoli?! This one is just the right amount of sweet, cream, and chocolate. We loved it.
And the Primavera Fruit Smoothie is back again this year, but I was trying it for the first time. This one really grew on me! It’s fruity and refreshing — a good antidote to the hot Florida sun.
You can see more pictures, the full menu, and prices on our Italy Booth Page!
Greece is always a winner at the Festival, and there’s always a line! Interestingly, the powers that be situate Greece right across from Canada, so you’re pretty much always surrounded by extensive lines in that general area.
The Griddled Greek Cheese with Pistachios and Honey is a true winner this year. Trust me, it’s worth waiting for! A rich, strong cheese, grilled up and slathered in sweet honey and crunchy pistachios — I can’t tell if it’s a dessert or not, but it sure tastes like one! So many flavors and textures in one!
The Souvlaki with Tzatziki returns and continues to be a fan favorite this year!
And the Dannon Greek Yogurt Parfait with Strawberries is new on the menu this year. We weren’t really anticipating this one, and we were right in our estimation that it was going to be somewhat pedestrian. I really didn’t understand the addition of the hay-like crunchy stuff that sticks out of the yogurt.
I think I’d probably just buy two griddled cheeses instead of get this again, but if you’re a big greek yogurt fan, you might really enjoy it!
This year, the Greek Salad with Pita Bread reminds us a lot of last year’s Salad, so if you liked it last year, you’ll probably enjoy it this year!
