WHAT A DAY WE’VE HAD!
Who would have thought that when we woke up this morning to head to the Cast Member Preview of EPCOT’s reopening (thanks to a friend!), we’d end up with EARLY access to A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!? Well, we’ve been eating our way around the fest as much as we can and we’re stopping into the NEW booth at this year’s festival — it’s time for Mac & Cheese!
This festival marketplace is the ONLY new booth at the festival this year and can be found with three other booths in the World Showplace Pavilion. So, without further ado, let’s chat about Mac and Cheese, Hosted by Boursin Cheese!
The menu at Mac & Cheese is (as is to be expected) FULL of Mac & Cheese options! Mac and cheese is basically our love language, so we were HERE FOR IT. After all, you KNOW how we feel about cheese. Plus, you can nab the Spike the Bee Spork here for $2.50 (bigger vessel for shoveling mac and cheese in our mouths perhaps??).
Guys…just stop for a sec and admire this. This is a thing of beauty:
Since this is a new booth, that means that ALL of the eats are new! Check out this Gourmet Macaroni & Cheese served with Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Cheese Sauce and topped with Herbed Panko for $4.50. This one was the BEST on the menu by far. It was crazy flavorful and oh-so-cheesy.
Next up, we tried out the Buffalo Chicken Macaroni & Cheese made with Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Cheese Sauce topped with Carrots, Celery, and Blue Cheese Crumbles for $5.50. We were super excited about this one because we LOVE buffalo chicken but…it wasn’t our favorite. All in all, there just wasn’t enough buffalo sauce and how can we love a BUFFALO mac without enough buff sauce? (It was still yummy, just not AS yummy as we’d hoped!)
Movin’ on to the Lobster Macaroni & Cheese for $6.50. This dish is made with that Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Cheese Sauce, Lobster Cream, and Herbed Panko. This one was our second favorite behind the Gourmet Mac. It had BIG chunks of lobster, so lobster-lovers might find themselves a little obsessed with this dish!
And we’ll wrap up with the Plant-based Macaroni & Cheese option for $5.50. As meat-eaters, this wasn’t our favorite, but it was a tasty option if meatless options are more your thing! It’s made with a House-made Italian Sausage (plant-based) and Peppers.
We hope you’re not full yet because there’s a NEW BEER at this spot too!
The new option is the Stiegl Brewery Radler Zitrone. As a note, you can get it as a 6 oz pour for $4.50 or a 12 oz pour for $8.50. We thought this was a pretty darn good sip! It was crisp and almost gave us seltzer vibes.
Overall, we’re pretty big fans of the Mac & Cheese booth. Some of these dishes were im-MAC-ulate! Sorry, sorry, too cheesy? 😉 Follow along with DFB and check out the links below for ALL of our coverage at the 2020 A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!
