Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Buttercup Cottage Pork & Apple Sausage Roll

Now, I was a bit more keen to try this than Nick was… Partly because I loved the sausage rolls that Sandy bought for a picnic in the park in Gateshead England…

I don’t remember seeing any fantastic, orgasmic, OMG gotta have it blog posts from the first days of the Flower and Garden Festival…

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Buttercup Cottage Lemon Scones

We were eager to have the lemon scones from the Buttercup Cottage – a couple of reasons, (1) the offerings from the Cottage last year were quite good and (2) the scent of these lemon scones accosted us every time we walked past, just begging our taste buds to enjoy them.

When I saw photos

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2014 – The Smokehouse Beef Brisket and Pulled Pork

Smoked Beef Brisket and Pulled Pig Slider

We liked the Beef Brisket and the Pulled Pork quite a bit last year when they debuted at the Flower and Garden Festival; so much so that we’ve talked about them to each other and anyone else who’d listen.

First off, let me point out that the

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2014 – The Smokehouse Beer Flight

The four beers in this flight proved to be better overall than the beer in the Florida Fresh flight.

A quick stop at Katsura Grill, Japan Pavilion, Epcot

Katsura Grill in the Japan Pavilion at Epcot has long been a favorite of ours – especially back before we moved to the Lake Buena Vista area… back then, it was pretty much an “always do” when we’d vacation at Walt Disney World. The udon is consistently good and the beer is consistently cold.

One

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2014 – Taste of Marrakesh Lamb Brewat Roll

We only tried one item from Taste of Marrakesh at last year’s Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival (spiced lamb kebab with vegetable couscous salad), it was pretty pitiful and disappointing because we typically LOVE lamb. We were so disappointed, that we just didn’t even try the booth during the Epcot International Food & Wine

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2014 – Lotus House Spring Pancake

Last year, we had the Spring Pancake twice… the first time, it was pretty “sorry” – the second time, it was improved.

Spring Pancake from Lotus House 2014 (with a side dabble of Srircha Sauce)

So far in 2014, our reviews on this item are mixed…

the pancake wasn’t greasy as it had been

2014 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival – Outdoor Kitchens and our plans for this year

Last year, we tried to eat everything from the outdoor kitchens during the Flower and Garden Festival (link to our FlipBoard magazine, Adults Extra Walt Disney World Magic – Flower & Garden 2013) – we didn’t “succeed” because there were some booths that we just didn’t want to eat at…

Sorry folks, this year is

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Germany Marketplace – Schinkennudeln & Riesling Kabinett

I wanted to sample the Schinkennudeln (Pasta Gratin with Ham & Cheese) – Nick didn’t have this as a “must have” on his list…

a digression, not to be confused with digestion

By the way… Have you heard of the new cookbook that’s all over the blogosphere the last few weeks? It’s “Melt: The Art
