Epcot Food and Wine Revisited

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on November 2, 2012

Epcot Food and Wine Revisited

On our way to Orlando from the Necronomicon convention in St. Petersburg, we stopped at the Parkesdale Farm Market in Plant City. Alerted to this venue at the annual Strawberry Festival, we hoped to obtain some of the goodies for sale at that event. We were pleased to find the same delicious strawberry bread at the farm stand along with fresh fruits and veggies, jams and jellies and honey, and many other treats in their gift shop.

P1010910 (800x600)   P1010911 (800x600)

From here, we moved on to Orlando and a revisit to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. We started at the opposite end from last time. The beef filet at Canada was exquisitely tender with sautéed mushrooms to die for. The coq au vin at France was just as good, tender chicken on a bed of mac and cheese in a generously large portion. Nearly full by now, I passed up many other treats or shared in a taste by family members.

Canada, Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon  with Truffle Butter, $6.50

Ireland, Warm Chocolate Lava Cake and Lobster Seafood Fishermen’s Pie

France, Coq Au Vin: $ 5.50; Chardonnay: $5.75

Near the American pavilion, a concert was underway. Here’s a sample of the Maine lobster roll from the Hops & Barley stand.

Moving on, we sampled the Shrimp on the Barbie from Australia.

My final sweet taste was the Rice Pudding with Berries from Scandinavia for $2.75

  1. Oh my God Nancy, I love your culinary sampling trips to Disney. I can taste that lobster roll right now.
    It must be all the walking there that keeps you so slim!

  2. What a wonderful culinary tour! I need to visit that market next time I’m in the area (maybe this weekend!).
