Epcot Food and Wine Festival Food Pictures: Desserts & Champagne and Cheese Booths

It’s time for more 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival booth food pictures! Today we’re headed to two of what I consider to be the “most improved” booths at the festival this year!

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.

Desserts & Champagne Booth

The Desserts and Champagne booth was moved from it’s former “booth” location to one of the World Showcase Promenade food kiosks this year, giving it a larger space and a fun new facade!

Desserts and Champagne?

We tasted all three desserts available here at the booth, and they were fabulous! While serving sizes weren’t huge, I enjoyed having three different tastes that made up a good sized “dessert.”

The Lemon Chiffon and Tres Leches Verrine were both very good, but the White Chocolate Macadamia Mousse stole the show here! LOVED it.

Cheese Booth

Last year’s Cheese booth was less than impressive, with cold potatoes served with the fondue and a pretty lacking charcuterie plate. This year, they’ve spiced things up with a trio of cheeses complete with accompaniments (honey!!!), and the fondue is back, but only bread is served with it this year.

The trio of cheeses was a big hit! I loved this. I thought the presentation was great, and offering the sweet accompaniments really made this dish a winner.

While the fondue isn’t the best I’ve ever had, it was actually quite authentic and tasted a lot like what I used to stuff my face with when I lived in Switzerland. That means there are a lot of strong flavors there that folks might not be used to, but it actually isn’t a bad fondue.

My major complaint here was the lack of a very fresh baguette. I would have paid a little extra for a fresh-out-of-the-oven baguette like the ones you get over at Chefs de France.

    I loved this year’s offering at the Cheese booth! I was pretty impressed with the offerings and really enjoyed the fondue, but we had lots left over after we finished the bread.

    AJ hit my wife’s three major food groups in this post. While desserts are not really my area, these three do look intriguing.

    The brie was amazing!! My boyfriend and I argued over the last bite. We tried to hit every country in one day! What a mistake that was…we ended up coming back the next day. There are to many great things at each both!!
