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

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…]

South Africa

South Africa is back in the World Showcase with it’s well-known filet of beef! This year, it’s accompanied by some delicious smashed sweet potatoes and a Braai sauce that’s excellent. I thought this dish was a winner!

Seared Filet of Beef with Smashed Sweet Potatoes and Braai Sauce -- $5.00

New this year is South Africa’s “Bunny Chow,” a veggie curry served in a bread bowl of sorts. This was tops on my list, but it was a fun addition to the booth!

Guest Review: New Dishes at Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Thanks to Disney Food Blog reader Galloping Gourmand for relaying his reviews of a few brand new dishes featured in this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival! You can find his reviews of several seafood dishes here!

Heirloom Tomatoes with Oregon Blue Cheese, Red Onions, and Basil
Found at this year’s United States Booth, there is not a lot I can say about this dish — I am practically predestined to like it. Nothing brings me more joy than shopping my local farmer’s market for some heirloom tomatoes.
