DFB Reader Finds
We recently asked our Twitter followers what their favorite dish was at this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival. DFB fan Kathy Karalekas was one of several people who said the Canadian cheddar cheese soup served with a pretzel roll from the Canada Marketplace Booth was her favorite dish. We love it too!
We love it when our fans share their fun food photos with us and this week DFB reader Scott Price wins for cutest photo of the week! We love his photo of the Mezzo Metro pizza from Via Napoli and several very happy kids! Thanks for sharing!
