Options at Epcots 2013 Food & Wine Festival

My countdown is on.  Only 32 more days until my family trip to Disney World.  We are there to celebrate our first family vacation, Halloween, my birthday (what can I say, I’m a kid at heart!) and best of all to taste our way around the world.

I came across the Marketplace Menus for this years Food & Wine Festival and I have to say, I don’t know where I will begin.

To start with, Brazil has an all new menu that includes such specialties as Seared Scallop with Ragout of Tomatoes, Peppers, Hearts of Palm and Steamed Rice or Crispy Pork Belly with Black Beans, Onions, Avocado & Cilantro.  Enjoy these entrees with a Carnaval Moscato Wine or a Frozen Caipirinha and you will feel like you’re actually in Rio.

Another country I am excited to see is South Korea where you can try items such as the hot new dish, Kimchi Dogs with Spicy Mustard Sauce or try the Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork and Kimchi Slaw. For those of you who are thinking, “what is Kimchi?” It’s a spicy side salad consisting of cabbage, scallions, garlic and various seasonings such as ginger & Korean red pepper powder, amazing! These two dishes would be well paired with Bokbunjajoo which is a Black Raspberry wine or Jinro Chamisul Soju which is one of the top selling alcoholic drinks in the world. Commonly mistaken for Sake, it is a distilled beverage native to Korea that is made of bamboo, you won’t get to try that everyday.

For those of you who have a sweet tooth, there will be an area called “Desserts & Champagne” which offers a Chocolate Orange Cupcake, Hazelnut Chocolate Cheesecake, or Frozen S’Mores along with Moet & Chandon Champagne. This sounds like the perfect way to end a perfect day of blissful dining at Epcot’s 2013 Food & Wine Festival.

Cheers!
