First Look! France Kiosk Updates Escargot and More at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival

The France pavilion in Epcot has been churning out some incredible new additions to the disney food arena over the past few years. From chocolate macaron ice cream sandwiches to ice cream martinis, frangipane and brioche ice cream sandwiches, there’s always more to sample in this corner of World Showcase.

The true flavor of France!

Epcot France 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Menu

The Epcot France Kiosk menu this year offers some guest favorites, and a few twists on old standbys.

Tartelette aux escargots: Escargot tart with garlic, spinach, bacon and parmesan
Gratin de crozet de savoie: Wheat pasta gratin with mushrooms and Gruyere cheese
Boeuf bourguignon: Braised short ribs in cabernet with mashed potatoes
Crème brûlée caramel fleur de sel: Sea salt caramel crème brûlée topped with caramelized sugar

The Tartelette aux Escargots is shaking up the tried and true France menu. For years, guests could expect and anticipate their snails tucked inside little buttery-garlicky rolls, like this:

But this year, a Tartlette featuring spinach, garlic, bacon and parmesan will serve as the escargot dish on the menu! Taste testers have raved, so we’re excited to get our hands on one soon.

Another new addition, the Gratin de crozet de savoie, sounds like the best Mac and Cheese evar. A wheat pasta is doused in Gruyere and studded with mushrooms. All baked up bubbly.

Here’s a fun twist: the milk chocolate creme brulee of past years has been traded up for a salted caramel version! Get ready for the Crème brûlée caramel fleur de sel.

And France’s decision makers have brought back the famous Boeuf bourguignon, which was a hit at last year’s festival.

    Are the escargot in the shell or on the block in the middle?

    I’m excited to have a different version of escargot. For many this will be the only time they ever get to try it and this version seems so much more appetizing.

  2. Dave says

    Does anyone know what the ice cream beverage is at the top of this article? Not the Passion Martini Slush. The one at the very top. It looks chocolate.

  3. Jordan says

    Dave,

    I believe it’s one of the ice cream martinis. Link to that page is in the very first paragraph, above the picture.

    I’m not gonna lie, you guys- those buttery, garlicky snailbombs were the highlight of my Festival every year. I’m seriously considering skipping the whole shebang without the brioche escargot! Nothing can compete with the delicious pop-‘em-in-your-mouth treats we’ve enjoyed so many times before.

  5. carrie says

    Tried the new escargot yesterday. Not to my liking. I was so looking forward to the buttery treats. The crust is very dry and the topping is rather tasteless. I was disappointed.

  6. Barbara Chiro says

    I was disappointed with this years escargot!! My kids and I look forward to the escargot every year and every year it is our favorite food at the festival!!! But this year… Not so much!!!
