It’s REALLY time to start planning your autumn trip to Walt Disney World now! Because not only have the dates been announced for the 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, but new menu items have been revealed for another favorite fall event — the 2019 Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic!
The 10th Annual Food and Wine Classic will take place on Friday, November 8, and Saturday, November 9, 2019. And the central attraction of the Classic is the more than 40 tasting stations featuring dishes from the resort’s 17 restaurants and lounges as well as more than 30 wineries on the Causeway. Check out the Menus page for an idea of what you can expect!
New Menu Items
Please note: since the event takes place over two nights, menu selections differ on Friday and Saturday evening at the Tasting Stations.
While there is still more to see on our full menus page, among the new items on Friday evening, be on the lookout for the Barbacoa Beef Taco with ancho Chile braised beef, minced red onion, lime wedge, lime- cilantro and “chimichurri” sauce from Picabu, and a Vegetarian Rice Bowl with roasted vegetables, seasoned sushi rice, and tempura crunch from Cabana Bar and Beach Club.
And on Saturday, guests can look forward to Pan-seared Rock Fish with cotechino, toasted fregola, romanesco with Lambrusco from Todd English’s bluezoo and Vegan Pho with rice noodle, bok choy, carrot, bamboo shoot, hoisin and sriracha from Fresh among the new offerings.
Seared Salmon with caramelized cabbage, sauce soubise, chestnut gnocchi ossolani from Garden Grove and Organic Kabocha Squash Ravioli with pumpkin seed and sage gremolata, pumpkin crema and pecorino from Il Mulino will be among the Saturday evening offerings.
And save some room for Poutine (French fries and cheese curds topped with gravy) at the Beer Garden on both Friday and Saturday night!
Remember, all tickets include the Beer Garden for 2019!
But that’s not all! Don’t forget that that Classic also features Seminars offering an immersive educational opportunity as participants delve deeper into the crafting of beverages, food and beverage pairing, and cooking demos.
