This booth has been one of our favorites in past years, so we’re excited to see it back!
We stopped by to try a couple of new drinks and say hello to an old favorite food that’s part of this year’s Emile’s Fromage Montage — the Cheese Crawl!
Okay, so we’ve tried all the food here before, but we’re going back for the Corned Beef Corner Route since it’s part of Emile’s Fromage Montage! All of the dishes have a sports-themed name since the booth is hosted by the NFL! Let’s look at the Corned Beef Corner Route first.
The Corned Beef Corner Route has Smoked Corned Beef with Crispy Potatoes, Cheese Curds, Pickled Onions, and Beer-Cheese Fondue. You can take a look at our past review for it here, but we went ahead and ordered this dish again because we didn’t want to miss a spot on the Cheese Crawl!
The Corned Beef Corner Route has a really good blend of flavors. We’re big fans of how the salty beef pairs with the creamy cheese. And the chips are the perfect compliment. We also like how the pickled onions break up the saltiness, but also tie all the flavors together.
And of course, the CHEESE is the best part (but maybe we’re a little biased because we love cheese so much). This one will probably make our Best of the Fest list again this year — you can try it out for yourself for $5.50.
Another return dish is the Chimichurri-up Offense. This is Charred Chimichurri Steak on a Smoked Corn Cake with Pickled Vegetable Slaw and Cilantro Aïoli. It’s gluten- and wheat-friendly and costs $7.25!
With all those savory flavors, you’ll need some sweet dessert to finish! It’s a good thing Flavors from Fire is bringing back the S’mores Whoopie Pie-lon!
This whoopie-pie-inspired dessert is Smoked Chocolate Cake, Graham Cracker, Marshmallow, Chocolate Ganache, and Candied Bacon. It’s also an old favorite of ours! It’s $4 and, in our opinion, worth every dollar and calorie!
If you’re looking for new sips at this year’s festival, the drinks are where it’s at with Flavors from Fire! There’s a new Saugatuck Brewing Company Bonfire Beer from Douglas, MI! Here’s the thing — the name would suggest a smoky flavor, but it doesn’t have that. It’s a little heavy for a hot day but has good flavor for a darker beer. You can grab a cup of it for yourself — it’s $5 for 6 oz and $9 for 12 oz.
There’s also the Four Virtues Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel from California for $6.
And if you’re at Flavors from Fire and haven’t tried the returning Swine Brine, we think you should give it a go! It’s an unexpected winner for us!
The Swine Brine features Jim Beam Bourbon and costs $11.
That rounds us out for the Flavors from Fire booth at EPCOT’s Food & Wine Festival! Keep following DFB, because we’re trying every new food and drink at this year’s festival!
