Best of the Fest: What To Eat at the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Happy 20th Anniversary of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

2015 Epcot Food and Wine Logo

We’re celebrating the best way we know how, with a trip all over Epcot to bring you the best of the best from the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

It was a tough job gathering all of the goodies and pricing for you at each of the Marketplace Booths for this year’s festival, but hey… somebody’s gotta do it. Of course, we needed a little sustenance along the way ;). What better excuse to Eat and Drink our Way Around the World again this year!

Be sure to click over to our Marketplace Booth Page to see pictures of every single dish at the Festival. Just click through the links for each booth to see pictures of all your favorite dishes, along with every single new one from this year!

Then, come on back to see our must-buys among the new items at the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

Chicken Sausage with Creamy Polenta at the Canada Marketplace

Well, whaddya know… along with the Le Cellier Beef Filet and Cheddar Cheese Soup, the Canada Booth can claim even more bragging rights with the return of the Chicken Sausage with creamy polenta and Minus 8 Onion Jam.

This was a favorite of mine back when it was on the menu at Le Cellier, and I was super excited to see it make its way to the festival back then. Sweet, savory, and with just a bit o’ heat, we’re glad it made its way back after being on hiatus for a couple years! [Read more…]

2015 Food and Wine Festival Booth Preview: Dominican Republic and Brazil Booths

The 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival is less than a month away!

Food and Wine 2015 Info Graphic Square URLThe big day is September 25 – that’s the beginning of seven weeks of incredible food and drinks in Epcot! And this year marks the Festival’s 20th anniversary so you know it’s going to be something special.

This year’s Culinary Demonstrations, Beverage and Mixology Seminars promise something for everyone; but, the food and drinks at the Marketplace Booths are what we’re most excited about.

Today we’re going to showcase two booths – one of which hasn’t been at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival since 2007! We’re talking about fan-favorite Brazil, which returned to the festival in 2013 and the Dominican Republic, which is making a return after several years away from the festival!

Dominican Republic Marketplace Booth

The Dominican Republic has been on hiatus since 2007 but is returning to the festival and we can’t wait to try all the dishes from this Caribbean island nation!

The booth used will be the brand new-last-year booth that was created for Puerto Rico. With PR not returning to the festival this year, DR will take over that booth and location!

We're Wondering if the Puerto Rico Marketplace Booth from the Food and Wine Festival May Do Double Duty as the Outdoor Kitchen During Flower and Garden!

The Puerto Rico Booth from last year will now be the Dominican Republic Booth!
