WDW Epcot Food and Wine Festival 2011 and a BAMA Hat!

Last weekend was a good one, yes sir!  Food and wine and a Crimson Tide victory!  I would also note that I was thankful to have been touring around the countries of Epcot, as it prevented me from seeing the Steelers game. Blah!

Caribbean Islands- Jerk spiced Chicken Drumstick with Mango Salsa and Frozen Rock Coconut Mojito

The weather was beautiful and the crowds fortunately were not to bad being that it was the first weekend of Epcot’s F&W Festival.  If you ever get the chance to go, I recommend it highly; it’s just a great day outdoors, with tons of great food and plenty of beverage choices.  You can read more about it here.

Starting our around the world tour at WDW Epcot Food and Wine Festival!Beer in hand and we are ready to go!

"Yes, I am quite brave to be wearing this Paul Bear Bryant hat the day after Alabama rolled Florida!"

"Well, sure you can call me Lady Carroll! And I like your hat as well!"

Just a fun shot of the "Golf Ball"!

There are guest Chefs from around the world and Chefs from Walt Disney World that participate in the Food and Wine Festival.  The creativity and planning starts very early in the year, all of these details you can see as you are walking around the World Showcase.

We really loved the new utensil dispensers!

South Africa- Bunny Chow

 

Hops and Barley- Pumpkin Mousse with Ocean Spray Craisins and Orange Sauce

  1. LOL, looks like you and Sir Wes had a riot of a time at Epcot! Looking at all the fare you two managed to eat, I’m jealous and now thinking of moving my whole family 7,000 miles to Orlando. Btw, thanks for landing on my site…yours is a gem of a find, so hilarious and yummy! Oh, and I say that with a spiffing British accent too :-).

  2. Haha! You weren’t kidding when you said that we had similar palates. Hawai’i and France are definitely are top contenders for my favorite booths this year.

    The Bunny Chow and Pumpkin Mousse with Orange Sauce look amazing! Is the Bunny Chow sweet? And did the orange sauce compliment the mousse? There are so many things I haven’t gotten a chance to try yet.

    You and Wes look like you had a blast at the festival! Thank you for sharing these fun and yummy photos. 😀

    • Marilyn, the Bunny chow is savory and lovely- the stew is served in this delicious cup, I am 90% sure that the cup is made on site, and it is a fabulous little “vehicle” for the stew.
