Just returned from my first stroll around the 2009 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! Tarps were being rolled up on the booths, food was being prepared, and merchandise was out en force. It’s shaping up to be a wonderful Festival.
In the meantime, I’ll keep adding links to my main Food and Wine Festival page; you can always look there for the latest.
Today, I’m going to share with you some of the preparations that are happening and a couple food pics that I was lucky enough to snag. Here we go!
Food and Wine figures direct you to the Festival Center — the Wonders of Life pavilion:
Don’t forget to grab your Food and Wine Festival wrist gift card!
Champagne and desserts booth looked fantastic!
Headed over to Cork, Ireland, for a taste of some yummy cheese and apple chutney!
The Marrakesh, Morocco, booth was displaying some wonderful options!
Cape Town smelled AMAZING as I wandered by — they were putting together the seared beef tenderloin with sweet potato puree and mango BBQ sauce!
I even got a chance to sample an avocado margarita while I was checking out La Cava del Tequila!
Paris was unloading boxes when I first walked by, but in early afternoon they were “cookin’!”
Some of the booths, including New Delhi, displayed plants and herbs from which they took flavorings.
CMs from Canada and Italy were very excited to share their countries’ foods (and bevvies)!
Can’t wait to try this one out tomorrow!
And the Eat to the Beat pavilion is all ready to go.
Hope you liked today’s photos! More to come!!
Also, I’m looking for your suggestions. I can’t eat everything at the festival, and I’d love to hear what you’d like me to sample and photograph while I’m here. Take a look at the booth menus and let me know via facebook, twitter, or email. Hopefully you have some ideas, because I need direction! Everything looks too good!
