Epcot Food and Wine Festival Recipe: Griddled Greek Cheese with Pistachios and Honey from Greece

One of the surprise hits of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival last year was the Griddled Greek Cheese with Pistachios and Honey from the super popular Greece Booth.

I was so glad to see that this menu item is back at the booth in 2012! (To see more photos and Food and Wine Festival menus, be sure to check out our complete list of Epcot Food and Wine Festival Booths, Menus, and Food Photos!)

Greece Booth

A perfect combination of sweet and salty flavors, this dish also introduces interesting textures into the mix with the griddled cheese and nuts. It proved to be so popular last year that distributors had a hard time keeping up with the demand — the dish sold out several times toward the end of the festival!

First Look! New Princess Cookies

Just last week some new Disney Princess cookies were introduced at the Disneyland Resort.  I spotted them at Marceline’s in Downtown Disney.  Not only did I conduct a little princess photo shoot on the spot, but I also took Ariel home with me for a taste test!

The generously sized cookies are all “Honey Vanilla” in flavor.  They’re available in 4 different designs and will set you back just under $5.00.
