You know what’s the BEST? Reading all the amazing reviews of foods and drinks at Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival when you know you’re going this year!
My hotel is booked, my race registration is complete, and now it’s time to get down to the real business:
defeating the huns making my short list of snacks and sips to try. I used this DFB list as a resource if you wanna follow along. Shall we? We shall!
BOOTH | ITEM | NOTES
THE ALPS | Warm raclette Swiss Cheese with… | With what? With whatever! There are two options and I’ll let Pat pick.
APPLESEED ORCHARD | Cider flight | … or possibly the beer flight? That’s a tough choice.
BELGIUM | Waffle with warm chocolate ganache | And maybe a Delirium Red Fruit beer to wash it down with…
BRAZIL | Pao de queijo | Love! Even if my carioca friend Erika does say you can find them in any Brazilian grocery store freezer.
BREW-WING | Wicked Weed Brewing Watermelon Dragonfruit Session Sour | It’s watermelon! It’s a sour! Did they make it just for me?!
BREW-WING | Cider flight | And every other cider flight, forever.
CANADA | Cheddar cheese soup | In it for the pretzel bread.
CHINA | Beef bao bun | Or anything in a bao bun. Or a plain bao bun; I’ll eat it.
CHINA | Jasmine draft beer | You put a floral in a drink and I will buy it every time.
FRANCE | Beignet aux Trois Fromages | I think the description speaks for itself.
GERMANY | Roast bratwurst in pretzel roll | See above note about pretzel bread.
HAWAII | Spam hash | SPAM. HASH.
HAWAII | Tuna poke | Basically Hawaii can get it.
HOPS & BARLEY | 81Bay Brewing Co. Strawberry & Lime | Strawberry and lime WHAT? I must know.
INDIA | Warm Indian bread | NAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!
INDIA | Madres red curry | I frickin’ love curry.
JAPAN | Teriyaki chicken bun | You steam it, I eat it.
MAC & EATS | Macs and cheeses | WHY IS THERE NO FOOD FLIGHT?
MEXICO | Capirotada de chocolate | Bread pudding is my FAVORITE.
MEXICO | Mexican craft beer | You know I love that Caribbean water.
MEXICO | El Tigre Margarita | Pat = Tigre, so.
THE NOODLE EXCHANGE | Shrimp & coconut curry with rice noodles | Again, gotta love the curry.
THE NOODLE EXCHANGE | Green tea pale ale | I’m not big on pale ales but I’m huge on green tea so let’s give it a go.
SHIMMERING SIPS | Mimosa flight | In it for the POG juice but that cranberry one does sound intriguing…
THE SWANKY SAUCY SWINE | Black currant sour | Sours are my JAM (get it?).
TANGIERINE CAFE | Cider flight | These flavors sound weird. I dig it.
Clearly I have my delicious work cut out for me.
Every time I look at the calendar is a fresh punch to the face: I won’t be eating any of this for months, guys. But hey, it’s always good to have something to look forward to!
This year’s Food & Wine Festival is already in full swing, so tell me: having a missed anything important? Have I made any massive mistakes? My epicurean future lies with you!
