In Which Jenn Makes Her 2016 Food & Wine Festival To-Eat List

Food & Wine

And now for my favorite post of the year: my Epcot Food & Wine Festival To-Eat List. The booth menus were released while I was on vacation, but you can bet I jumped right on them the second I got back, assembling my High Priority snacking list.

… Where I discovered that I have become one of Those People: the Food & Wine Festival Regulars Who Complain When Things CHANGE. Because why do things change???

Food & Wine Festival

It’s cool, though; while I may mourn the passing of some of my personal favorites, I’m sure a wonder of new culinary masterpieces await me. And who knows – resurrection may be just a year away!

Now, without further ado, I give you my 2016 Food & Wine Festival To-Eat List.

  1. I'm bummed I won't be at Wine and Dine this year – some of this sounds so amazing!! Hummus fries and loaded mac and cheese, mmm. Also, we had the JamJar Sweet Shiraz at Jiko and it was awesome! So much so that it's my husband's favorite wines. There's a store near us that carries it so we're always stocked up on it now. If you like sweet wines I have a feeling you'll like it!
