Pam Brandon wrote the following on the Disney Parks Blog:

“Debuting just in time for this year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, the newest Epcot cookbook shares the best-of-the-best recipes, but also includes favorites from the 2016 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, which started adding its Outdoor Kitchens in 2013, now an integral part of the spring fest.

Sharing food and drink is such a communal experience, and the circle around World Showcase Lagoon is the perfect place. The cookbook lets you take the memories home and recreate favorites with family and friends. Here are two of our favorites, one from each festival. The kale salad is a simple meal in a bowl, and the warm quesitos are super-easy and melt-in-your-mouth delectable.

The cookbook will be for sale at the Festival Center, Festival Emporium, Festival Boutique, Mouse Gear, World Traveler, Gift Stop and other Epcot shops during and after the festival. And look for Epcot Culinary Director Gregg Hannon and myself at the Festival Center for a recipe demo and cookbook signing.”

You can see the original post, which also includes a couple of recipes (one old and one new) by clicking here.

 

For those of us that have several of the past Food & Wine Festival cookbooks, we’re hoping that there will be lots of new recipes in this volume, as opposed to reprinting mostly older ones with just a few new ones thrown in… and we’re also hoping they do a better job of proofing this volume than they have done in a couple of the most recent cookbooks from Disney (but that’s a subject for another day…).

Back to the kitchen…

The Bog is Back!

June 10, 2015

As Dedicated Readers know all too well, we here at Eating (and Drinking) Around the World just live for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! And now that some info about the upcoming festival is beginning to come out, we’re, well, just getting a little bit giddy…

In a recent post on the official Disney Parks Blog, Pam Brandon gave us a “First Look at 20th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival“…  of course there will be Celebrity Chefs, Eat to the Beat concerts (Miss Bonnie is especially giddy about the return of Rick Springfield!) and the 25+ Marketplace kiosks, but the really big news is… wait for it….

Did someone say Cranberry Bog???

“I’m a Bog, I’m a Bog oh, the Bog is Back… (hopefully not) stone cold sober as a matter of fact…”

the bog is back!

The surprisingly popular Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog was a late no-show last year (see the post “Bye Bye Bog…“), but we’re promised a return this year…

Cheers to you Cranberry Bog... we hope to see you back soon!  (Photo courtesy Papa Harry)

Cheers to you Cranberry Bog… we hope to see you again soon!

and if we’re lucky, we may just get a return trip inside the bog itself!

Many more details on the Festival should be coming out in about a month, as the Tables in Wonderland Sneak Preview is scheduled for the 12th of July, so stay tuned!

Back to the kitchen!

This past week saw the opening of the 2014 version of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and not surprisingly, we were there!

I was there on Thursday for the soft-opening day along with Papa Harry and Mama Ginny, and Miss Bonnie joined us for the festivities on Friday and Saturday.

I thought I’d share a few pics and initial thoughts on some of the new stuff at the festival, so let’s dig in, shall we?

Food & Wine display at Epcot entrance

The entrance display is much less elaborate this year than it has been in the past. All the elements look to be recycled from prior displays.

No bog here...

No bog here…

And in the area that formerly held the Ocean Spray cranberry bog sits a few more recycled items and a salad-tossing Mickey topiary.

If you need a brewed libation to start your tour of the food booths, you won’t find the craft beer kiosk in it’s usual location at the beginning of the World Showcase…

Craft Beer is located inside the Odyssey building this year

you’ll have to take a detour to the left and enter the Odyssey.

Inside the (thankfully!) air-conditioned space you’ll find ample tables and seating…

Beer Flight and Craft Beer Snack Mix

and, of course, beer (and there is something different about beer at the festival this year, more on that later…)! And this year some food items as well are being served alongside the brews.

Spicy Pimento Cheese Dip (top) and Muffuletta Pinwheels with House-made Pickles

Spicy Pimento Cheese Dip (top) and Muffuletta Pinwheels with House-made Pickles

I really liked the nicely spicy pimento cheese (must be the Southern Boy in me) while Bonnie loved the snack mix that’s served gratis with any beer purchase (oddly you get one nice size serving with a single 6 ounce brew, and the same amount with a flight…) and she also thought the pickles alongside the Muffuletta Pinwheel were perhaps the Best-Pickle-Ever!

Around the World Showcase there are two expanded/highlighted areas this year…

Main entrance to Puerto Rico area

Puerto Rico sits in the area behind the Desserts and Champagne booth (Promenade Refreshments during the rest of the year)…

Brazil!

while Brazil has taken over the large area that has been home to the Belgium booth in recent years.

Colorful flags fly over the seating area and the new booth is covered in bright tiles…

Oddly, the sign above the booth says "Introduced 2014"... but there was a Brazil booth in 2013... and even before that...

A close-up view of some of the tiles that sure looks like, of all things, a Coelacanth! Would sure be more interesting if they were serving those instead of Tilapia! But then, I guess Coelacanth aren't exactly sustainable (and also from no-where-near Brazil...)...

There were live musicians in both Brazil and Puerto Rico during the weekend… a very nice touch…

Brewer's Collection Menu from 2013

Brewer’s Collection Menu from 2013

let’s look at the Brewer’s Collection menu from last year…

Brewer's Collection Menu from 2014

Brewer’s Collection Menu from 2014

and compare to this year… notice anything???

Yep, up until this year beer drinkers could chose from a 6 ounce, 12 ounce or even 22 ounce glass (and a 24 ounce flight of four 6 ounce taps), this year all festival beer locations are serving exclusively 6 ounce glasses, and the flights total 16 ounces (four 4 ounce glasses). When I queried a cast member if this was a method to keep the drunks a bit more in line (which it most certainly is), she gave me the well-prepared answer that the festival was intended to be a “sampling” event, and the smaller servings was simply going “back to the roots” of the event. Actually I think this is fine, I liked when they added the 6 ounce servings a few years ago exactly for the reason that it allowed me to sample more beers without getting too bloated or blotto (at least early in the day…). It’s also worth noting that when they first added the smaller servings that didn’t really jack the price for them (only about a quarter extra on average), and somewhat surprisingly they kept prices the same this year. Regular (year-round) beer locations, BTW are still serving 12 ounce beers.

Souvenir Wine Glasses

Souvenir Wine Glasses

Since they don’t now have a vehicle for selling the 22 ounce souvenir beer glasses, Disney has added a souvenir wine glass (for an extra $4) with a wine purchase at the kiosks (or you can just buy the glass if you like). The glasses are heavy plastic and hold about 8 ounces, they are sturdy and a reasonable size for home use, so not a bad price for a Food & Wine remembrance.

Cookbooks, mugs, towels and more...

Cookbooks, mugs, towels and more…

And don’t fall off your chair, but there is a ton of new merch for the 2014 festival! The cookbook this year features recipes from not only the Food & Wine Festival, but also ones from Flower & Garden and the Holidays around the World (so they will get to sell it year-round I imagine…).

And how was the food? Everything we tried was anywhere from good to great… The Sea Scallop from Ireland and the Bacon Hash from Farm Fresh were definitely our top two of the new dishes we tried this weekend, both rated a wish-I-could-have-more-right-now status. I liked the Slider with Pimento Cheese much more than I expected, and everything in Brazil was a winner… Nothing in Japan was transcendent, but all were good (with the Chirashizushi being the most interesting), and I’d gladly down any one of them again… the Conch Salad in Puetro Rico was very flavorful, but it was a very small portion of the salad atop quite a bit of rice… the small items in Craft Beers were all pretty good, with the Pimento Cheese being my favorite…

All in all, it was a great start to a record-long Epcot Food & Wine Festival! There’s still a lot of dishes to try, and we’ll have many other things to share and discuss over the next several weeks… so…

We’re back to the kitchen, and back soon to the Food & Wine Festival! See you soon!

2013 Food & Wine Festival display at Epcot main entrance

With the 2014 version of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival just around the corner, I thought we’d take a quick “compare and contrast” of last year’s food items to what’s being offered this year…

New Zealand Booth at the 2013 Festival

New Zealand Booth at the 2013 Festival

To many, if not most, festival-goers the food booths around World Showcase are the main draw. And each year everyone wants to see what’s new to try (and what favorites from the prior year have disappeared), so let’s look at some numbers…

A new item in 2013, the Potato & Leek Waffle with Braised Beef will return this year

A new item in 2013, the Potato & Leek Waffle with Braised Beef will return this year…

I took a look at the items offered in 2013 at the kiosks and the list of what we’ll see in 2014….

but the Youki Tofu, also new in 2013, won't be making a comeback this year (and probably not too many people will be upset...)

but the Youki Tofu, also new in 2013, won’t be making a comeback this year (and probably not too many people will be upset…)

and crunched the numbers…

The Luscious Lamb in the the Australia booth first featured a crunchy potato topping in 2012, and it was the same in 2013 and will be this year as well... no arguments from me...

okay, there wasn’t much crunching involved, and I didn’t really double-check the numbers, and I was sampling a new Margarita of the Month while I was doing it…

Hope you didn't like the Scallop with Peppers, Tomatoes and Hearts of Palm that was served in the Brazil booth last year... it's been nixed this go-round...

so do hold me to any hard statistical analysis or expect 100% accuracy…

The Cheese Koisk is a no-show this year, but there will be a all-new Cheese Plate at Hops & Barley...

The Cheese Koisk is a no-show this year, but there will be an all new Cheese Plate at Hops & Barley…

I looked strictly at the food booths around World Showcase (not the Festival Center, Coffee Carts, etc.) and what I counted was: items that stayed exactly the same; items that will be 100% new (which should roughly equal the number of items that disappeared from last year); and items that are basically the same, but have had changes made to the sauce, side, etc. (admittedly there were a few “judgement” calls here…).

Don't cry for Argentina... even though the kiosk will be gone, you can still get yourself an empanada at the new Patagonia booth

Don’t cry for Argentina… even though the kiosk will be gone, you can still get yourself an empanada at the new Patagonia booth

And what did I come up with?

There are 37 items that will be the same as last year, 4 that have had some change made to them and 32 totally new food offerings at the kiosks in 2014…

And I'm still a bit bitter about the "Shrimp on a Stick" being dropped from Singapore last year...

And I’m still a bit bitter about the “Shrimp on a Stick” being dropped from Singapore last year…

To me that’s a pretty good turnover – you have to have plenty of old favorites from year-to-year (think of the riot that would ensue if the Cheddar Cheese Soup went away in Canada, even though everyone seems to complain about the portion size each year…) and a certain amount of items that probably were liked well enough to keep on for at least another year… getting over 40% new items to try sounds like a pretty good mix to me (your thoughts?). And with 73 food items (even though 2 or 3 are simply a candy of some sort), there should be plenty of things to spend time in line for!

Not to mention the booze…

Block & Hans, which has been featuring craft beers year 'round, will be serving wines during the Food & Wine Festival

Block & Hans, which opened during the 2013 festival, and has been featuring craft beers year ’round, will be serving wines during the 2014 Food & Wine Festival

And speaking of the booze, no, I didn’t try to count all the changes there as it started getting into a lot more judgement calls (some booths had basically the same wine varietals being offered, but from different producers… it started to give me a headache… I’m expecting a big enough headache as it is from trying all the drinks!), but overall there does look to be lots of new adult beverages to try.

Don't spill!

Don’t spill!

And yes, there are plenty of flights (multiple beer combos of course, as well as tequila and Scotch) to be found this year, and there does look to be a few more mixed drinks than in the past (can you say Tzatziki Martini in Greece?).

If you want to peruse the booth menus for this year, you can see them over at the Disney Food Blog.

The new things I’m especially intrigued by include the Duck in China (as well as the Coppola wines there), the Bacon Hash at Farm Fresh, the Fish with Coconut Lime Sauce in Brazil and pretty much everything in Puerto Rico!

Hope we'll see you there!

Hope we’ll see you there!

Anything you’re particularly looking forward to trying? Put your Food & Wine Wish List in the comments!

As always, we’re back to the kitchen, and soon we’ll back at Epcot!

See you soon!

Bye Bye Bog…

August 25, 2014

As we approach the opening day of the 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival we’ve learned that one of the favorite displays, the Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog, will not be at the Festival this year…

Did someone say Cranberry Bog???

Did someone say Cranberry Bog???

Last week I (along with several other bloggers) got an email from our Ocean Spray rep saying (in part) that “…after much discussion, Ocean Spray has decided to put the Cranberry Bog exhibit on hold for this year’s festival.

This will be bad news to many as since it’s debut in 2011, the bog was very popular with festival guests, and on the opening weekend of the event the past couple of years Ocean Spray has hosted an event that actually allowed media guests (clad in incredibly attractive waders) to tromp around in the cranberry bog itself while sampling cranberry-inspired snacks and cocktails.

I had heard (but not verified) thru the Interwebs that the contract between Ocean Spray and Disney had expired, and from the phrasing in the email it sounds like the Craisins® folks are the ones that pulled the plug (though not knowing what any negotiations between the parties may have taken place, it’s really hard to say who might really be to “blame” for the contract not being extended or a new one put in place…).

What makes this even more interesting is that Disney (thru the official Disney Parks Blog) noted earlier this year in a post by Pam Brandon that “the remarkable Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog” would be part of the 2014 Food & Wine Festival… curiouser and curiouser…

"Give me all your Crasins and no one will get hurt..."

“Give me all your Crasins and no one will get hurt…”

The email from Ocean Spray went on to say: “We hope you stay tuned for future events and enjoy the Craisins® Dried Cranberries that will continue to be featured in dishes and kiosks throughout the park.”

The booklet from the festival preview dinner in July listed “Ocean Spray® Craisins® Brand Dried Cranberries” as a Corporate Sponsor of the event, but there was no specific mention of the cranberry bog (that I could find at least).

I guess we’ll have to see how much Craisins® continue to be promoted throughout the parks in the coming months… hopefully we’ll see a return of the bog in years to come!

Flying Cranberries!

Cranberries will not be flying in the bog this year…

And we’ll see in just a few weeks what, if anything, fills the physical gap left by the bog in Epcot during the Food and Wine Festival.

Cheers to you Cranberry Bog... we hope to see you back soon!  (Photo courtesy Papa Harry)

And while we’re on the subject of cool things that will be missing from Disney this fall…

fotm_sm_fy12

it was also announced this past week that due to the ongoing construction in Downtown Disney in preparation for the conversion into Disney Springs, the uber-popular Festival of the Masters event was cancelled for this year.

Nearly four decades old, this art festival (and in recent years a mini-food-and-wine-festival in itself) drew huge crowds to Downtown Disney each year. You can see some pics from one year in one of my “WDW Odds & Ends” posts that highlighted the Festival of the Masters.

With the nightmare that parking has become there since the construction began (and it wasn’t great before…) this, sadly, kinda makes sense for this year… it just worries me a bit that the Disneyland version of the Food & Wine Festival was nixed a few years back (specifically it was cancelled for 2011 and 2012) due to the mass construction in the California Adventure park where it primarily took place, and it has yet to return (or even be mentioned as returning by Disney to the best of my knowledge)… as popular as the Festival of the Masters has been I really do expect (and hope) it returns next year (or at worst the year after), but…

Okay, bad news is over… good news is that the Epcot Food & Wine Festival opens in just about than a month! We’ll see you there!

Do these events sound good to you? Will you book them? Let us know!

 

Cheesy, chewy, incredibly addictive…

Pão De Queijo

Pão De Queijo

these are one of the items that I’m sure will be a big hit at the 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival!

Earlier this year while down in Miami, I picked up the Spring copy of Edible South Florida. With the (then) upcoming World Cup in mind, that issue featured an article about Brazilian foods, and one of the recipes for a cheesy bread/puff looked to be worth trying (especially considering Miss Bonnie’s fondness for anything fromage… or I guess in this case more appropriately queijo). So I squirreled this away under the mental to-try-later-file…

Coincidentally just a few weeks later some details about the upcoming Epcot Food & Wine Festival (the Best Time of the Year!) were starting to be given out, including some of the booths and food items we’d see this fall. Lo and behold, at the returning Brazil booth we’re going to see the same cheese puff I’d just seen the recipe for: Pão De Queijo! It was then a no-brainer to try out the recipe… and when I did the Heavens opened and the Angels sang! Yes, it’s just that good!

So let’s waste no more time – Let’s Cook!

Pão De Queijo

 

blah

Ingredients…

Ingredients

2 Cups  Tapioca Flour (aka manioc starch or tapioca starch, you can find in some supermarkets, and we also found at a very good price at the Asian market)
1 Cup  Milk (I used 1%, but full strength is okay)
1/2 Cup (1 Stick)  Butter
1 Tsp  Salt
1 1/2 Cups  Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Eggs
Procedure
Preheat oven to 400°F.
blah

Dairy on dairy action…

Put milk, butter and salt into a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

blah

Stirrin’ the starch…

Remove from the heat and slowly add the tapioca flour, stirring well until thoroughly mixed.

blah

Cheese raining in…

Add eggs and cheese to the mixture and stir until smooth. You’ll have a fairly thick, sticky dough.

blah

All stirred up…

You can finalize these in one of two ways…

blah

Cute little muffin tin ones…

If you have mini-size muffin tins, drop the batter into those suckers and stick in your preheated oven for about 20 minutes… according to the original recipe this will make about 24 pieces, but we found it to make closer to 36…

blah

or you can blob onto a baking sheet…

If you don’t have little muffin tins, you can drop by spoonfuls (about a tablespoon, give or take) onto a baking sheet (or sheets)…

blah

Ready for the oven, not too pretty now…

and pop into the oven for (you guessed it) about 20 minutes…

blah

But pretty darn pretty now!

until golden brown and delicious!

blah

Oh yes, bite into this!

This will make flatter, kinda biscuit-like delicious cheesy-goodie.

Which is better? Both are pretty dang delicious, but the deeper mini-muffin-tin version might be a bit more gooey-cheesy in the middle… make ’em both ways and see what you like! In either case, the cheese seems to magically migrate into the center of the puff while the exterior is crispy and crunchy… dang, these are just amazing!

blah

A basket of cheesy, Brazilian bodaciousness!

Seriously, these are just amazing (that’s from the Department of Repetition) and addictive… and once you find the tapioca flour they couldn’t be much easier to make! And since there’s no wheat, they’re even gluten-free (if that matters to you…). They even freeze pretty well (if you have any left, that is…) – defrost and reheat in a toaster oven for a bit and you have some in-mouth-happiness ready to happen!

blah

Cheesy yummy insides!

Yes, you must try these! I don’t know how this recipe will compare to what will be served at the Food & Wine Festival this year, but I can’t possible imagine they could be better!

Give them a try – post your comments!

As always, we’re back to the kitchen (and soon to the bar…), see you soon!
