As I mentioned previously, Tadd and I met some friends at Epcot on Saturday for the International Food & Wine Festival. If you have never attended this event, you are missing out! Each year World Showcase gets decked out with various country-specific booths showcasing small tastes of food and drink from that country.
There are also other events all around Epcot that you can attend, including wine tastings, cooking demos, and meet & greets with celebrity chefs. We mostly just stick with the food & wine booths, and just enjoy strolling around World Showcase, sampling lots of different items as we go.
It seems like as the years go on, the booths themselves get more and more elaborate. Each one is highly themed to its country’s architecture and culture. Here are a few of my favorites:
Of course, the food was great too! Here are a few of the items we sampled:
Not pictured, and probably rivaling as my favorite item of the day is the pierogi with kielbasa from the Poland booth. I give the kielbasa to Tadd (not a fan), but the pierogi is awesome! It is topped with caramelized onions and is just delicious. But generally speaking, I adore pierogies…so take that with a grain of salt.
Anyways, we had a great time. The crowds were high, but usually we don’t let that bother us at the themeparks. I would really like to find a way to go back sometime in the next few weeks, as there are a few booths that we skipped that I would still like to try. But with the way our schedule is looking, I’m not entirely sure how that will happen. We’ll see!
Already looking forward to next weekend! On the agenda: pumpkins, corn mazes, incredible weather, and completing our Halloween costumes! Fall weekends are always the best!
