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.

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!
