Epcot Food and Wine 2009

EPCOT FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL 2009

My parents absolutely love this event and if ever they are over at the villa when it takes place they always visit it at least once.

This seven week Festival has fabulous food from countries on 6 continents. You can enjoy the food when you visit the Marketplace before you going to the Eat to the Beat! Concerts.

There is so much to choose from with food from Ireland to South Africa as you wander the international and regional marketplaces throughout the World Showcase promenade. So much so that my parents always complain they do not know what to choose from the vast array. Added to their problem this year the tastes of Bangkok, Thailand and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil have been added to the Festival.

This year I decided to look at the 25 international marketplace kiosks that serve up tapas-sized portions of regional specialties at an average price of $2 to $5, along with recommended wines and beers before they go. My parents wanted five recommendations and this is what I came up with:

Bangkok, Thailand at the Africa Outpost. Dad loves spicy food.

Chicken and Coconut Soup, with Mushrooms, Lemongrass & Ginger

Green Papaya Salad with Shrimp

Singha Beer

New Delhi, India at the China Pavilion. Here I think they will try the Potato and Onion filled pastry while Mother will probably have wine.

Mango Lassi (Chilled Mango Yogurt Drink)

Rava Masala Dosa, Sambal (Potato and Onion filled Pastry, Sambal)

Gulab Jamun (Fried Dough in Rose Syrup with Pistachio)

Sula Vineyards Wines: Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc, Kingfisher Premium Lager Beer

Cork, Ireland at United Kingdom Pavilion. Mother is half Irish and will love this food particularly the apple chutney and brown bread.

Lobster & Scallop Fisherman' s Pie

Kerrygold Cheese Selection: Aged-Irish Cheddar, Dubliner and Ivernia Cheese with Apple Chutney and Brown Bread

Warm Chocolate Lava Cake with Bailey' s Ganache

Bunratty Meade, Guinness Draught

Montreal, Canada at Canada Pavilion. I chose this because they both like salmon and also thought they would like to try a chicken sausage.

Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup

Maple Glazed Salmon with Lentil Salad

Spicy Chicken Sausage with Sweet Corn Polenta

Maple Sugar Candy

Moosehead Beer, Paul Bosc Estate Vineyard Chardonnay, Château des Charmes Riesling, Château des Charmes Vidal Icewine, St. David' s Bench Vineyard Merlot

Finally I thought they could end their evening, for obvious reasons at:

Desserts & Champagne at Showcase Plaza

Austrian Gugelhupf (Austrian Bundt Cake)

Strawberry Shortcake

Frozen Grand Marnier Parfait, Orange Coulis

Champagne Moët & Chandon Wines: Impérial, Rosé Impérial, Nectar Impérial, Nectar Impérial Rosé

I must admit I had not really appreciated how much was on offer until I started this task and the next time we visit the villa late in the year we will be sure to go ourselves to this Festival.
