China

The China Marketplace Booth has been known for large portion sizes and fun cocktails at the Festival since 1996. It’s a very popular booth this year!

This year’s menu got a relatively big renovation, although a few of the items remained (or were tweaked and renamed.)

First up — making its debut in 2012 is the Mongolian Beef with Chinese Steamed Bun. The stir-fried beef had excellent flavor from the traditional vegetables, and I really loved the creamy sauce.

Pork Pot Stickers were an item that stuck around from the past few years. I imagine there [Read more…]

Australia

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.

And, again, the Lamington is a fantastic dessert. Offering three different textures and flavors — moist sponge cake, rich chocolate ganache, and coconut — it’s like eating a [Read more…]

Guest Review: Epcot Food and Wine Festival Seafood Dishes

Thanks to Disney Food Blog reader Galloping Gourmand for relaying his reviews about a few seafood dishes featured in this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

This was my first trip to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, and while I couldn’t go to any events I was determined to make the most of it. I arrived early so I could ride all the rides I wanted (first load on Soarin’!) and maximize my eating time. I saw it as an opportunity to try things I have never tried before and ignore the myriad of health problems one could get from eating them all in a 10 hour period. Some of these are international foods that are hard to get where I live (near NYC, so not many of those) and others are things that I’ve simply never tried before.

Here are a few reviews of seafood dishes around the [Read more…]

Epcot Food & Wine Festival Food Pictures: Canada, Greece, and Australia Booths

We’re still eating our way around the 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival! Here are a few of the items we got a chance to scarf down yesterday.

Canada
Once again, Canada is one of the strongest booths at the festival! With a strategy of taking the best items from the Le Cellier menu and miniaturizing them for the booth, guests get to sample a mini-meal from the restaurant.

One of our favorites was the chicken chipotle sausage with corn polenta; the addition of the peppers makes this a spicy and delicious dish — possibly better than what you get in the restaurant! Also, the sweet Maple glaze on the salmon is wonderful. Of course, one of my favorite items from the booth was the ice wine; my husband didn’t even get to try a drop! And the Nanaimo bar — a new item on the menu this year (and not found in the restaurant) is a decent nod to Canadian favorites. While the Nanaimo bars my mom makes are better, this is a nice, sweet way to end your tour of Canada. You can see more pictures, the full menu, and prices on our Canada Booth Page!
