The 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival is RIGHT around the corner! With the countdown at just about a week now, we know that you’re just as excited as we are.

food and wine festival logo

Today we wanted to spotlight the NEW items that are coming to the menus at the World Showcase Marketplace booths this year. And with more than 30 new dishes and sips to sample this year, there’s plenty to experience!

We have a TON of stuff to cover, so to keep it all straight we’re gonna go alphabetically! Ready? Here we go! (And don’t forget, you can check out ALL of the menus from the World Showcase Booths — and many food photos — at our World Showcase Booth Page.)

Africa Marketplace

We had the chance to try a sample of the brand new South African Bobotie with Turkey and Mushrooms from the Africa Marketplace and loved it! The egg dish packed a spicy punch when we tried it at a preview.

Lovers of South African wines will also appreciate the addition of the Fairview Pinotage to the menu.

America Adventure Coffee Cart

If you love the flavors of Fall, get ready to try the Apple Maple Spice Latte at the America Adventure Coffee Cart in the America Pavilion. It’s available hot or cold!

Australia Marketplace

Always a fan favorite, the Australia Booth will feature a new lineup of beverages this year, including Cooper’s Brewery Original Pale Ale, Chateau Tanuda Grand Barossa Dry Riesling, St. Kilda Chardonnay, and Nine Stones Shiraz. The menu looks to complement classic Food and Wine Festival dishes like the Grilled Lamb Chop with Mint Pesto and Garlic Shrimp with Roasted Tomatoes, Lemon Myrtle and Rapini.

Belgium Marketplace

At the Belgium Marketplace, we’re seeing another hot trend — hard cider. We think that the Stella Artois Cidre will be a big hit with festival goers who are looking for a refreshing alternative to beer.

Block & Hans Kiosk

Brazil Marketplace

While Brazil brings back a favorite menu item from 2013, the Pork Belly, there are several new items to savor as well.

Moqueca de Pescado: Regal Springs Premium Tilapia with Coconut Lime Sauce and Steamed Rice

  • Moqueca de pescado: Regal Springs Premium Tilapia with Coconut Lime Sauce and Steamed Rice
  • Pao de Queijo: Brazilian Cheese Bread
  • Cocada: Brazilian Coconut Candy
  • Tannat Reserve

We enjoyed the Pao de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread) recently, and can’t wait to see how it’s presented at the festival.

We’re also intrigued by the Cocada (Brazilian Coconut Candy)!

Brewer’s Collection

The Brewer’s Collection Booth continues to play host to a variety of German beers, including BraufactuM, a pioneer in the German craft beer industry. Beer lovers can sample two additional BraufactuM Beers in this year’s lineup in addition to other well-known names. Take advantage of Beer Flights to compare and contrast flavors and styles!

New to the Brewers’s Collection, try the following alone or in a flight:

China Marketplace

Bubble Tea has been making a big splash at the last couple of Epcot Flower and Garden Festivals, and it’s popping up at Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, too. So we’re excited to see Mango Green Tea with Popping Bubbles featured at the China Marketplace!

Also new to China is a Beijing Roasted Duck in a Steamed Bun with Hoisin Sauce. Yum!

Craft Beers Kiosk

Whereas the Brewer’s Collection plays host to German Beers, it’s all American, all the time at the Craft Beers Kiosk!

Craft Beers Booth

Desserts & Champagne

The Desserts and Champagne Kiosk is always a fun stop for inventive takes on sweet treats. We often see hot trends explored here. The Passion Fruit Coconut Creamsicle promises to be a fun new addition!

  • Dessert Trio: Passion Fruit Coconut Creamsicle, Blueberry Lime Cheesecake Roll, and Chocolate Espresso Opera Cake
  • Ruinart Blanc de Blanc
  • Dom Pérignon
Champagne!

Champagne!

And who can resist sipping a glass of Dom Pérignon?

Farm Fresh Marketplace

For 2014, the former Florida Fresh Marketplace will morph into the Farm Fresh Marketplace. The booth’s refocus gives the culinary team an opportunity to utilize fresh, local flavors from surrounding states, in addition to Florida.

We’ve had a chance to try the Nueske’s® Pepper Bacon Hash with Sweet Corn, Potatoes, Hollandaise, and Pickled Jalapeños. It’s a great take on a much-loved breakfast dish.

Pepper Bacon Hash with Sweet Corn, Potatoes, Hollandaise, and Pickled Jalapenos

We’ve also had the pleasure of trying the Griddled “Yard Bird”. It’s incredible! Skin-on Chicken Thigh Meat is seasoned and then cooked on a griddle under a weight. The effect produces meat that is perfectly juicy with crisp skin. Simple and delicious! The sweet-spicy Habanero Sauce that tops the chicken complements the textures and seasoning beautifully.

The dish is served with a hearty helping of another Southern favorite — Braised Greens. Collard Greens and Kale make up the dish for just the right mix of flavor and texture. The greens are seasoned with Onion and Bacon. I’m not even a big fan of greens — but these were pretty great.

In keeping with the theme of local food and drink, the pairing with this dish is Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale — brewed and canned right in Jacksonville.

The hearty Brown Ale is a great pairing with the Griddled Yard Bird and Greens.

Here’s a complete list of all the new flavors you’ll find at Farm Fresh this year!

  • Nueske’s® Pepper Bacon Hash with Sweet Corn, Potatoes, Hollandaise and Pickled Jalapeños
  • Griddled “Yard Bird” with Braised Greens
  • Orlando Brewing Company, I-4 IPA – Orlando, FL
  • Ba Ba Black Lager, Uinta Brewing Company – Salt Lake City, UT
  • Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale, Bold City Brewery – Jacksonville, FL
  • Florida Cracker Belgian Style White Ale, Cigar City Brewery – Tampa, FL
  • Florida Orange Groves, Key Limen-Key Lime Wine
  • Chateau St. Michelle & Dr. Loosen Eroica® Riesling
  • St. Francis Old Vines Zinfandel
  • Beer Flight (4 4-ounce servings): I-4 IPA, Ba Ba Black Lager, Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale and Florida Cracker Belgian Style White Ale

Fife & Drum Kiosk

You’ll find a crazy fun craft beer to try at Fife & DrumMmmHops! If that name brings with it visions of 90s pop music, then you’re on the right track. MmmHops Pale Ale is the brainchild of the brothers (and music group) Hanson — who will perform during the festival’s Eat to the Beat Concert Series!

Mmm Hops Beer

MmmHops Beer

If ice cream’s more your thing, Fife & Drum will also feature a Ghirardelli Ice Cream Sundae for the festival as well!

France Marketplace

The France Marketplace is always an exciting spot to check out while you Eat and Drink Your Way Around the World, and 2014 is no exception. The culinary team here has come up with some amazing new flavors. Tops on our list to try will be the Tartelette aux Escargots, a savory tart combining Escargot with Garlic, Spinach, Bacon, and Parmesan. The tart will replace a festival classic.

Tartelette aux escargots

The Gratin de Crozet de Savoie, or Wheat Pasta Gratin with Mushrooms and Gruyere Cheese, is sure to be an instant hit. It sounds amazing, and we can’t wait to try it!

Crème Brûlée has been a popular dessert here for a while now. Capitalizing on another hot food trend, this year’s version features the flavors of Caramel Fleur de Sel. We sampled it recently, and really enjoyed the deep caramel flavors.

A thousand apologies that I didn’t actually get a snap of what’s underneath that beautiful sugar shell. The caramel flavor really comes through in the custard itself. I have a feeling this is another dish that will garner rave reviews!

Also new at the France Marketplace this year is the La Passion Martini Slush, replacing the Eiffel Sour Slush from the past two years.

Germany Marketplace

Is it possible that the Germany Marketplace won’t be our one stop shopping spot for Apple Strudel this year??? Well, thank goodness we have a recipe to make it at home!

In the meantime, we are dying to try the Berliner, a Yeast Doughnut Filled with Apricot Jam! Jelly Doughnuts are ALWAYS a good option in my book.

A new wine, Kallstadter Kobnert Spaetburgunder Spätlese Dry Barrique Style, also debuts.

Greece Marketplace

There are lots of returning favorites at the perennial favorite Greece Marketplace. But we really enjoyed the Vegetarian Moussaka at a recent preview event! The dish maintains all of the rich flavors of the original, but lightens up the protein component by using Soy Crumbles in place of meat.

Vegetarian Moussaka

Vegetarian Moussaka

Greece will also introduce an intriguing new cocktail with featuring savory flavors — the Tzatziki Martini featuring Crop Organic Cucumber Vodka and BOLS Natural Yoghurt Liqueur. Hmmm…this practically sounds like health food. ;-)

Hawai’i Marketplace

What would we do without the Kalua Pork Slider at the Hawai’i Booth? Fortunately, we don’t have to figure that out this year! But there are a couple of new additions to the beverage lineup. Enjoy a new offering by Kona Brewing Company, Castaway IPA. Lovers of dessert wines may want to give Maui Splash Sweet Pineapple wine a try. And this year’s version of the Aulani Sunset features Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum.

Hops & Barley Kiosk

You’ll find a celebration of American flavors at the Hops & Barley Marketplace. A hot spot of both food and drink, the offerings here make a complete meal!

The Cheese Booth is taking a break in 2014, so we’re seeing the addition of an Artisan Cheese Plate at Hops & Barley. The plate will feature some artisan cheeses we’ve enjoyed at Disney restaurants, including Purple Haze Chevre and Caveman Blue.

Purple Haze

The Florida Grass Fed Beef Slider returns to the festival at the Hops & Barley Booth this year — but it features a new topping. House-made Pimento Cheese is having a bit of a moment in culinary circles, and you’ll find it here topping this two-bite burger. It’s creamy with a bit of a kick.

Lobster has been a mainstay in this corner of the festival for a few years, and this year, we’re seeing a new comfort food dish — Baked Lobster Alfredo.

Under the Breadcrumb Crust, we found Pasta and chunks of Lobster Meat tossed in a rich Alfredo Sauce. With a consistency that’s a little drier than mac and cheese, fans of comfort food will still likely enjoy this upscale version of a kid’s classic.

Baked Lobster Alfredo

We’ve sampled the Carrot Cake with Craisins and Cream Cheese Icing from the Hops & Barley Marketplace as well. Carrot Cake fans will enjoy the moist cake and classic Cream Cheese Frosting. The addition of Craisins lends a seasonal flair and an additional pop of fruit flavor.

Carrot Cake

Enjoy a new lineup of beverages to pair with all the great food! Here are the drinks that are new to Hops & Barley this year:

  • New Belgium Brewing Company Snapshot
  • Leinenkugel’s Seasonal Shandy
  • La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
  • Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, Cambria Estate Winery
  • Beer flight (featuring 4 4-ounce servings): Samuel Adams Octoberfest, New Belgium Snapshot, Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat and Leinenkugel’s Seasonal Shandy

I love the additions of the shandies.

Ireland Marketplace

While most of our favorites from past years made the menu again at the 2014 Ireland Marketplace, we are looking forward to sampling a brand new beverage option Kerrygold Irish Cream Liqueur.

Kerrygold Irish Cream Liqueur Debuts at the Ireland Marketplace in 2014

Italy Marketplace

We look forward to trying a brand new dish at the Italy Marketplace this year — Filetto di Pollo, con Funghi al Marsala. The dish, which features Chicken Tenderloin and Cremini Mushrooms served on Ciabatta with a Marsala Sauce, sounds heavenly!

Italy is also replacing the popular Italian Margarita with the Frozen Primavera. Featuring Limoncello and Tequila, this is similar to the cocktail we enjoyed at the 2014 Flower and Garden Festival.

Primavera Fruit Smoothie

Primavera Fruit Smoothie

Japan Marketplace

There are lots of new flavors to check out at the Japan Marketplace this year! The Teriyaki Gyoza Bun stuffed with Chicken, Vegetables and Sweet Teriyaki Sauce sounds like a winner. The Chirashizushi promises to be a show stopper as well with its combo of Salmon, Shrimp, Crab, and Egg, all served on a bed of Seaweed Salad and Ginger Rice.

Sake takes center stage in new drink options and a new dessert. Try Kikusui Ginjo alone, or sample the Sake Sunrise. Save room for something sweet with the Sparkling Peach Sake Gell. Ooooh — we’re intrigued!

Japan Booth

Mexico Marketplace

There are lots of returning flavors at the Mexico Marketplace in 2014 as well, but they are changing up the dessert and beverage offerings just a bit. I’m not a fan of the Sweet Corn Ice Cream at La Hacienda de San Angel, but lots of people are! We’re anxious to see if the Sweet Corn Cheesecake here will bear any resemblance to it.

Last year, festival guests enjoyed the sweet and spicy Mango Habanero Margarita at the Mexico Booth. This year’s menu will feature a Mango Strawberry version. Frozen or on the rocks? We look forward to finding out!

Strawberry Margarita on the Rocks

Strawberry Margarita on the Rocks

Morocco Marketplace

This year, the Harissa Chicken Roll will make way for a new item on the Morocco Marketplace Menu — the Spicy Shrimp Roll with Cilantro and Mint Sauce.

We hope the flavors are similar to one of our favorite Spice Road Table dishes, the Spicy Shrimp.

Spice Road Table Shrimp

We’re Hoping the Spicy Shrimp Roll is Similar to Spice Road Table’s Spicy Shrimp!

Guerrouane White, a wine that’s new to the booth, but featured at Spice Road Table will also be featured. I expect the citrus notes of the wine to pair nicely with the savory, herbal flavors of the shrimp.

Patagonia Marketplace

Patagonia makes its debut this year, taking the place of the super popular Argentina Booth. Expanding the focus to this important South American region allowed chefs to bring in flavors of neighboring Chile as well.

The Roasted Verlasso Salmon with Quinoa Salad and Arugula Chimichurri from the Patagonia Marketplace is an exciting dish, as it features Verlasso Salmon, a sustainably farm-raised fish with high marks from conservation watch groups.

The Quinoa Salad is one of our favorite side dishes that we’ve tried so far. There’s so much flavor packed into it! Check out this recipe and try it at home — it’s a great way to utilize Quinoa, a protein-rich grain from South America that continues to grow in popularity.

Salmon

The Salmon pairs wonderfully with the Cono Sur Bicicleta Viognier.

Prefer a Rose? Try Cono Sur Bicicleta Pinot Noir Rosé instead.

Poland Marketplace

We’ve grown accustomed to seeing Pierogis at the Poland Marketplace. But 2014 offers two versions of this favorite, and a different twist on the classic.

This year, try a Pierogi filled with tangy Sauerkraut and served with a hearty Pork Goulash.

Pierogi

Sauerkraut Pierogi with Pork Goulash

The pairing here is something special as well. Donausonne Blaufrankisch is a Red Table Wine that’s actually Hungarian. While the flavor profile of the blend is definitely sweet, it plays off of the rich flavors in the dish very well. And how often can you say you’ve tried Hungarian wine?

Donausonne Blaufrankisch

Puerto Rico Marketplace

The Puerto Rico Marketplace will be a festival centerpiece in 2014. Executive Chef Jens Dahlmann has spoken excitedly about the authentic flavors that will be offered here. He hinted that the Marketplace itself will be something pretty special as well. We can’t wait to see it!

Recently, we had the chance to sample the Ensalada de Currucho, or Caribbean Conch Salad. The cold dish features cooked Conch Meat combined with Onion, Tomato, and Cilantro.

Conch Salad Puerto Rico

Try pairing Gasolina Sangriiia with the Conch Salad. Think of it as Fruit Punch for Grown Ups. :-)

Guests can also enjoy a selection of Frituras, an assortment of deep fried snack food that’s popular in Puerto Rico. Selections will include Sorullitos (Sweet Polenta Fries) and Bolitas de Queso (Cheese Fritters with Mayo Ketchup).

Another traditional dish, Carne Guisada con Arroz Blanco, features Slow-Braised Beef on a bed of Puerto Rican-Grown Rice, is comforting and delicious.

FlanCocho (Vanilla Caramel Custard with Chocolate Coffee Cake) will round out the food offerings at Puerto Rico.

There will also be several other beverage options in addition to the Gasolina Sangriiia. These include:

  • Medalla Light Beer
  • Frozen San Juan Breeze
  • Frozen San Juan Breeze with Don Q Limón Floater
  • Chilled Club Caribe Mango Rum (neat)

Refreshment Cool Post

Refreshment Cool Post, the cool outpost as you round the bend in World Showcase, continues its tradition of treats to cool you off. Stop by for a Mango Star, featuring African Starr Rum.

Refreshment Port

Refreshment Port at the entrance of World Showcase will be your one stop spot for all things Dole Pineapple-related — including Dole Whips!

Scotland Marketplace

The Scotland Marketplace debuted in 2013 and is back this year sporting several new menu additions. Don’t worry though — the Vegetable Haggis is still available!

If you’re looking for new flavors, try the Fresh Potato Pancake with Smoked Scottish Salmon and Herb Sour Cream. We’ve tried the Seared Sea Scallop with Spinach-Cheddar Gratin and Crispy Bacon…pretty sure this one’s destined to be a big hit.

Sea Scallop with Spinach Cheddar Gratin and Crispy Bacon

And for a sweet ending, we look forward to sampling the Crannachan, a traditional Scottish Dessert Trifle.

South Korea Marketplace

And after reading a little about iCing Grapefruit Sparkling Rice Brew at the South Korea Booth I can’t wait to try it! It sounds like a cross between Nigori Sake (the slightly sweet, unfiltered stuff) and Soda. How can you go wrong with that??

iCing Grapefruit Sparkling Rice Brew, Available at the South Korea Marketplace

Terra Marketplace

Totally Vegan Terra has changed up its menu every year since it arrived on the Promenade, and 2014 is no different. This year, check out the brand new lineup of vegan goodies you can sample!

  • Blackened Chick’n Breast, Farro Wheat and Spicy Gumbo Sauce featuring Gardein™ Chick’n Breast
  • CraB’less CraB Cake with Pepper Slaw and Cajun Remoulade featuring Gardein™
  • Chocolate-Blood Orange Cupcake with tofu icing
  • Red Bridge Ale
  • Paperboy Red

We had the chance to try the CraB’less CraB Cake with Pepper Slaw and Cajun Remoulade, and thought it was a great addition to the lineup!

  1. says

    Yum!!! Everything looks amazing! Although I should have *not* read through this at midnight! :D I can’t believe it’s time for F&W already!

  2. Beth W. says

    Hi AJ! As a fan of ALL things Maple, do you think that the Maple Latte at the American Adventure coffee cart might stick around for a while? Till December, maybe? :)

    Maple seems to be one of those flavors that people either love or hate, and I think that most folks associate the fake pancake syrup for “true” maple…it isn’t!! As a kid, we used to pour hot maple syrup onto snow packed into cake pans, making little swirls and twists. The syrup would solidify into chewy candy. It was delicious!

    More Maple, please Disney!

  3. Clarissa says

    It’s so weird to see cocada and pão de queijo served there, it’s something so common and “street market vendor” in my country! I might try it just to see if it holds up to the original ;D

    If you’re into very VERY sweet coconut desserts, you’ll like cocada. It’s a bit too sweet for me, pure sugar/condensed milk almost, but still very good!

    Ahh only 29 days left for my trip, I’m too excited!

  4. Maggie says

    I have been looking for bubble tea & now they are going to have it the one year I am going to miss the festival! :(

    This is the story of my life.

  5. Bonnie Appetit says

    Any idea what the vegan trio will be at Intermissions Cafe? It would really be fun to see a post rounding up and reviewing all the vegetarian and vegan options at the F&W Festival!

  6. says

    Bonnie — No word yet on what the trio will be. We figure that’s so they have some latitude to change things up a bit during the Festival. But stay tuned — we’ll have full details about all the 2014 Marketplaces and other Festival foods next week!

  7. Galloping Gourmond says

    Everything at the Australia booth looks good. I admit that I haven’t read this whole post yet because it’s a lot of information. I am 3 weeks out and need to get my game plan together.

    Also need to somehow fit in one last ride on the Malestrom between the food. We will be the last to go that way :(

  8. Luvf&w says

    I noticed yesterday that on the Disney website there are food items (that sound great!) listed at the Craft Beers marketplace. Have you heard anything about these??

  9. says

    Luvf&w — Nope, those are brand new! Thanks for the heads up. I’m adding them to the menus right now, and we’ll have pics of each of the items later this week!

  10. jujubee says

    Ignore the lobster pie . It was god awful. A huge almost
    inch and a half too crusty piped on pile of mashed potatoes (the taste of instant from a box) and a tablespoon underneath of some liquid that did not taste like lobster but apparently had a few carrots and no seafood/ lobster found. Awful and more expensive than other “tastes”.
