Epcot Food and Wine Festival Food Pictures: Germany and Brewer’s Collection Booths

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.

Germany

Germany comes back strong once again this year! We love how they’ve moved the location of the booth back next to the Brewer’s Collection booth! They’ve placed a little biergarten between the two! Perfect!

The new item on Germany’s menu this year is the Goulash Suppe. We really enjoyed the subtle spiciness of this dish. I think this will be a winner if the days get any chillier in Orlando in November! ;-)

Goulash Suppe -– $3.50

Of course, the Sausage in a Pretzel Roll remains my favorite at this booth. The slightly spicy sausage and the saltiness of the roll make an ideal pairing.

Nürnberger Sausage in a Pretzel Roll -– $4.50

But that strudel is delicious as well! This is quite the dessert! Luckily, you can get it [Read more…]

Italy
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.

Cappellini con Gamberi Piccanti (Cappellini Pasta with Spicy Shrimp) -– $5.25

Cappellini con Gamberi Piccanti (Cappellini Pasta with Spicy Shrimp)

The ravioli this year is very similar to last year (they’re just using the Italian name this year ;-D). Delicious — the perfect comfort [Read more…]

Australia brings back the favored lamb chop for the third year in a row, pairing it this time with a potato-goat cheese salad, which is quite good! A fun flavor and great texture. Again, the lamb deserves all of the accolades it’s getting.

Grilled Lamb Chop with Potato-Goat Cheese Salad and Shiraz Reduction -– $5.75

A surprise winner for me at the festival this year was the Shrimp on the Barbie with Pepper Berry Citrus Glaze. The shrimp were very well-cooked and I really enjoyed the (more spicy than I expected) glaze!! Great flavor on these.
