In honor of the 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival‘s final weekend, I’d like to rattle off a few of my favorite dishes from this year’s 15th Anniversary Event World Showcase Promenade! To see menus, pricing, and more food photos from the Festival, check out our Booth Pages!
Puerto Rico: Medianoche Sandwich and Bacardi Frozen Torched Cherry Colada
The Puerto Rico booth packs a punch this year, with just about everything on the menu being crave-worthy! We particularly loved the Medianoche Sandwich, partly for its name and partly for its incredible, savory taste. What a great mix of flavors!
The perfect accompaniment: a Frozen Torched Cherry Colada. A creamy, icy, sweet treat, this had a very distinctive flavor and texture — truly a winner.
Canada: Chicken Chipotle Sausage with Sweet Corn Polenta and Nanaimo Bar
The Canada booth remains my favorite from the festival. The Chicken Chipotle Sausage (a miniature of the appetizer at Le Cellier) and Nanaimo Bar were two great flavor winners at the booth this year. In fact, the extra peppers on the sausage and polenta dish gave it a fantastic spicy bite that made it taste better to me there than it has in the restaurant!
The Belgium booth stormed in with an array of tasty treats this year, and the one that sticks in my mind is that longed-for Belgian Waffle! The sweet, soft-on-the-inside, crisp-on-the-outside waffle topped with sweet-tart berries and whipped cream made for a wonderful way to start — or end — the day!
