It’s an exciting time, as we count down the days until the 2015 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival gets underway!
Of course, around here, we’re most interested in the Outdoor Kitchens! We’re so excited to see the return of these kiosks stationed around World Showcase.
2015 will mark the third consecutive year that guests of the Festival can enjoy sips and tapas-sized dishes, themed to celebrate the bounty of the garden.
And while we’re still awaiting the full menus, we do have some news regarding some of the new dishes that will debut at this year’s festival.
Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Outdoor Kitchens
First off, let’s discuss which Outdoor Kitchens you can expect to see this year. While we haven’t heard word which Kitchen from 2014 won’t return, we know that Botanas Botánico will debut. Check out this post about Botanas Botánico to learn more about its menu.
That means we anticipate at least one 2014 Kitchen will be absent, as we expect there to be 11 kitchens.
So far, we know the following will return:
- Fleur de Lys in the France Pavilion
- Taste of Marrakesh in the Morocco Pavilion
- Hanami in the Japan Pavilion
- The Smokehouse: Barbecue and Brews Outdoor Kitchen in the America Pavilion
- Primavera Kitchen in the Italy Pavilion
- Lotus House in the China Pavilion
- Jardin de Fiestas in the Mexico Pavilion
- Florida Fresh
- Pineapple Promenade
- Urban Farm Eats
As far as dishes go, there are certainly some exciting things that we can’t wait to try. We hear that fan favorites, like Frushi, will return.
Chefs will also take advantage of the Florida strawberry season once more by offering Beijing Candied Strawberries.
